Can anyone help to understand why this stamp of the Straits Settlements (1883, Scott #45) is cancelled Hong Kong?

Security Hand stamp in Violet G & Co (Commercial Overprint) Gilman & Company
(Agents for Maritime Insurance companies situated in Hong Kong)

Perhaps an arrival marking Commercial papers to the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corp, cancelled in transit.?

Could it not also be a Paquebot cancel?

I have quite a few HK stamps cancelled in Singapore, and that's what I figured they might be.

Paquebot seems like a good idea. My bit of research online turns up examples that look a lot like the one above. There would have been a handstamp elsewhere on the cover to indicate that this item was posted on ship in transit. The DTS would be that of the port of entry. See http://paquebot.info/?s=Hong+Kong&lang=en
