We are indebted to London Mayoral Candidate Sadiq Khan for his election pledge to support the Chinese Labour Corps memorial campaign.
In a Chinese New Year statement, Sadiq Khan states,
As your Mayor I will:
- Support the Chinese community’s call for a London Memorial for the 95,000 Chinese Labour Corps members, whose contribution to Britain during the First World War has yet to be properly commemorated.
This support is particularly welcome as it comes unsolicited from the Campaign Team.
