Ahoy there. Looking through the log books of HMS ST GEORGE dated 23 Sep 1916 it states "Three carpenters working on board the SS CHOO-CHOW-FU". I can not find this ship and I was wondering if it was a merchant ship or a small ship such as a tender or possibly the nick name of a ship. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

It is possible that the log book entry has misspelled the name.


Here is Chao Chou Fu.

It does look like the name was misspelt . No wonder I could not find her. Many thanks

 Just found out she was hit and damaged by a torpedo off Egypt fired by U-65 (Gustav Sieb) September 12  1918 . No other information.
