Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

In the same vein as the US Navy in Mexico 1916 topic, here is a postcard showing a US sailor's impression of what duty on the Whang Poo River [Huangpu River; 'Yellow Bank River'] in China was like.
On the back it says "Shanghai, China 6-17-16 This river is full of boats and Chinese like you see on here. They live on the slops that ships throw overboard.  Here is one along our starboard side catching what we dump out.  They eat, sleep and live in the little boat. several have as high as five children and parents all at home in the little 'sam pan'.  Lovingly, Doyle "
