SS Hsin Wah (Script error), or written as s. s. Hsin Wah at the time, was a steamship owned by China Merchants Steam Navigation Company, navigating between Canton City, Hong Kong, Shanghai.[1] She was built in 1921 by Messrs Napier and Miller in Glasgow. The ship was once seized by pirates of Bias Bay in 1928 and saved by a Chinese gunboat Chung Shan. She sunk in 1929 when grounded on northern rocks of Waglan, an island southeast of Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong, with a loss of around 400 lives.[1]
