Wuchow

In 1941, Wuchow (Wuzhou; 111.317E 23.483N) was a small river port at the limit of navigation (for ships of 2000 tons or less) of the Hsi (Xi) River in southern China.  The Hsi River is a major branch of the Pearl River which finds its mouth near Canton.

Wuchow fell to the Japanese on 20 September 1944, during the Ichi-go offensive.
