Huang Yiguang (黄逸光) took part in one of a number of assassination attempts on the life of the Chinese politician Wang Jingwei, during the Japanese occupation of China (1937–1945). An aviator and explorer, he travelled widely with strong connections with the Chinese community in the United Kingdom. A former associate of Wang, he was welcomed in Wang's inner circle but his assassination attempt failed when his radio equipment was discovered. He was executed on 17 December 1940.
