Note(s)

August 23, 1937 "Disaster, bringing death and mutilation to 800 noncombatants at Shanghai's busiest shopping intersection, struck the Settlement today when a large bomb or shell tore its way through the side of the Sincere Department Store to explode, the force wrecking even the Wing On Department Store across the street and making a bloody shambles of the whole immediate area. " (Bruce, Shanghai’s Undeclared War, 1937, p. 19)
