Today, Chile commemorates 40 years since the bloody military coup which ousted Salvador Allende, the first democratically elected socialist president of a Latin American nation.

For the first time in well over a century, a part of Chile's naval history with Asia has returned to Hong Kong. The brass bell of the former three-masted Chilean training ship, "General Baquedano", along with a ceremonial sword that belonged to an officer who served on board the vessel during one of its voyages circumnavigating the globe, will be displayed as part of an exhibition at Hong Kong's new Maritime Museum.
