''To the Chinese Merchant Seamen who served this country well during both world wars.
For those who gave their lives for this country - Thank You.
To the many Chinese Merchant Seamen who after both world wars were required to leave.
For their wives and partners who were left in ignorance of what happened to their men.
For the children who never knew their fathers. This is a small reminder of what took place. We hope nothing like it will ever happen again.
FOR YOUR MEMORY ''
