By Yvonne Foley
Chinese seamen sailed in all the major allied merchant fleets during the Second World War and, in the British Merchant Navy, there were over 20,000 Chinese crew, many sailing out of Liverpool. Paid significantly less than other seamen, after the war their pay was cut and the majority were forced out of their adopted country.
