After the Second World War, the Chinese Navy bought HMS AURORA on 19 May 1948 and renamed her CHUNG KING. Later she defected to the Communists who renamed her TCHOUNG KING. Nationalist aircraft sank her in Taku harbour in March 1949. She was later salvaged, but is not believed to have become operational again, although she was subsequently renamed HSUANG HO (1951), PEI CHING (1951) and KUANG CHOU.
