This chapter examines the conflict between foreign navies and Chinese warlords at the Yangtze River in 1926. The confrontation over the transport of Chinese troops of rival warlords broke out in early September between General Yang Sen and the British over interference by the former with shipping of the prestigious British firm Butterfield and Swire. Since the British had lost their gunboat protection on the river above Ichang and consular representation at Chungking, it was left to the Asiatic Fleet to provide protection and prevent wanton destruction of foreign property.

Keywords:   navies, warlords, Yangtze River, China, Yang Sen, Butterfield and Swire, Asiatic Fleet
