Originally named the Yongfeng Warship, the Zhongshan Warship was one of the two modern warships which the Qing Government commissioned from Japan in 1910. Upon its completion in 1912,the warship was assigned to the Beiyang Government Navy. It was later renamed Zhongshan Warship in honour of Dr. Sun Yat Sen after his passing in 1925. During the Sino-Japanese War, it was sunk off the waters of Jinkou in Yangtze River in Wuhan after suffering extensive damage from the attacks launched by the Japanese fighter planes on 24 October 1938. The Zhongshan Warship had been lying submerged in the waters since then until it was salvaged 59 years later, in 1997.

A collaboration between Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall and Zhongshan Warship Museum in
Wuhan, this exhibition will showcase more than 50 artefacts ranging from honorary plaques to military equipment, salvaged from the Zhongshan Warship, displayed outside of China for the first time. Through the artefacts, historical objects and archival materials displayed, audience will be introduced to the rich and exciting history of the Zhongshan Warship, a vessel closely tied with modern Chinese history.
