Cooperation with Wang Ching-Wei, 1925-1927

Post by jerryasher » 21 Mar 2020 23:49

I have a citation that Wang Chin Wei, (he would act in concert with the Japanese from 1939), arrived at Shanghai on April 3, 1927 on a "Soviet" ship from abroad. (Date could be off a day or two). Can anyone identify the ship? In 1927, the number of "Soviet, " ships would have been quiet small and I am interested in their operations in general, but have few references, and even some of the Russian language articles I thought would be easy to find a translator for, have proven otherwise. Pamyat Lenina by this time has been seized and scuttled. Erivan did ply the Yangzi as far as Wuhan(Hankow) and it seems that in early 1927 January--June a regular run possibly Vladivostok --Shanghai--Hankow might have operated. I think there was a scheduled service Vladivostok to Canton (Guangzhou) that might have runs as late as December 1927. Many thanks--I realize this is quirky. Many thanks in advance.

According to Russian 2010 book Soviet military intelligence in China he arrived in Shanghai on April 1st from Vladivostok.
No ship name was given unfortunately.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.

Thank you Greg: Is this work by Raymond W. Leonard or by M. Alekseev in Russian (World Cat--item 161 under Soviet military intelligence in China). The Alekseev books title specifically indicated 1922-1929. Again thank you

Yes, it's Mikhail Alekseev's Soviet military intelligence in China and the chronicle of "Chinese unrest" (1922-1929).
