Shining Moon, a small Chinese junk, the personal ship of Miss Lee. Given to the Swallows, Amazons and Captain Flint for their return from the Three Islands via Singapore to St Mawes, Cornwall at the end of Missee Lee.

Miss Lee's gift of Shining Moon to her prisoners was not entirely magnanimous, she was already having a "better" replacement built (ML19, 23).

is she real?[]

Shining Moon has fiction-within-fiction status, so she may not "exist".
