Description: In 1937 the Japanese army took charge of much of eastern China. Although China was a Second World War backwater, the largest part of the Japanese army was tied down in China, maintaining internal order, and this limited what Japan could do in its war against the Allies. The conflict between China and Japan affected Canada both socially and militarily.

Description: The HMC Prince David, Prince Henry and Prince Robert ships were built at Birkenhead in the United Kingdom by Cammell Laird for the Canadian National Steamships Company.
