A picture of "Leander" (sorry, cannot post it for copyright reasons) clearly shows the same ship as the the wlb-picture.
A good start, Klaus, to erade an error.

In the last one please look into the link mentioned there, if you're interested in tons of pictures of the later "Soya", some even while still carrying her Soviet name! Only bitterness: the size is relatively small.

Hello Klaus Günther

If you would like better images of "Soya", I suggest you purchase the model kit of this ship from Hasegawa. It comes with a very nice booklet (in Japanese) with high-quality images of the ship, including the ones on the web site you reference.

Thanks, Marty, but I don't buy a ship only to get some images :)
But I have found some better quality images of "Soya":

And here is a painting of Dzhurma.... Just in case anyone is interested. This is the new paperback edition. The painting, done by Dick Moore, hangs in my office.

Gentlemen:
Have spent several evenings trolling all posts on this thread and wish to convey my admiration for your efforts. My interest is in maritime aspects of the Sino-Japanese War 1937-1939, the period of Japanese hegemony of coastal China from 1939-1941 and finally World War 2 along the coast of China, 1941-1945.

Your extraordinary knowledge of Soviet shipping relating to the Spanish Civil War prompts me to enquire if you have similar data for Soviet assistance to China beginning Aug 21st, 1937. In late November 1937 two British flagged ships departed Sevastopol for Hong Kong carrying 30 tractors and 82 T-26 tanks. While a bit off your usual topic it seems to me that the Soviets would have built on their experience --thus, does anyone know the names of the ships and dates? Other points? BP you mentioned that four Soviet flagged ships were stopped by the Imperial Japanese Navy during 1937-38. Any data--names of ships, dates, voyages to and from, names of IJN ships and circumstances. The loss of Guangzhou (Canton) in October 1938 and the disruption of the land bridge from Hong Kong required Soviet ships to be routed to Rangoon according to Chinese sources. Can anyone track Soviet aid shipments during 1938? Names of ships? dates? cargo?

From September 1939 to June 1941 Soviet-German cooperation constantly aroused fears that the economic blockade of Germany was being circumvented. Thus in December 1939 the British were convinced that the Dutch Tjisarcca unloaded a cargo of rubber to the Soviet Kim which sailed to Vladivostock with the cargo destined for Germany. In January 1940 the 2,492 ton Selenga (Soviet)? was detained and I have the Vladimir Mayakovsky being detained at Hong Kong with a cargo of copper in February. (Is this the same instance as your Vladimir Kayakovsky being "forced" to Saigon by the French in March 1940?)

Very impressed with discussion of the four Soviet ships at Hong Kong 1941 and the diplomatic stand off in July/August 1942 for the three that could be moved by towing. Were there other Soviet ships in Chinese ports in December 1941?

Many thanks in advance--Jerry Asher

Jerry,

I've seen the request. There is nothing immediately accessable that answers your questions. I'll need to look through some of my Russian books. Off on vaction for a couple of weeks and will get to it as soon as I return.
