In Memoriam 12 August

The following four members of the Chinese Labour Corps died on the 12th August:

CH’ANG CHIH HAI (100234) 1919
KAO HUA CH’I (7740) 1919
LI LAI FU (76400) 1919
LIU FENG I (54908) 1919

If you are wondering why 12th August 1919 when hostilities ended on 11th November 1918, it’s because the Chinese Labour Corps were kept on after the armistice to repair roads, clear the battlefields and recover ordnance. They also exhumed the fallen, reburying them in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission cemeteries. See our video for more information.

We remember them.
