    I think it may be

    13 Feb. “HMS CHANG TEH” sunk in the Durian Straits

    HMS Chang Teh (or Tay) - left 13.02.42. Sunk in Durian Strait.


    Shipping Company Losses of the Second World War


    https://www.google.co.uk/books/editi...sec=frontcover

    CHANGTEH. Tug. requisitioned by the Admiralty in 1941 and became HMS Changteh, an auxiliary minesweeper. With military personnel on board, sailed from Singapore on 13 February 1942. Bombed and sunk by Japanese planes in the Durian Strait on the 14th. Forty got away in a lifeboat, but 10 died while trying to land at Sumatra. It would appear that the survivors then walked from the mouth of the River Indragiri to Rengat. From Rengat, they were taken to Padang where they embarked on the cruiser HMS Danae which carried them to Tjilatjap. Over 100 died.
