Rediscovered in 2014 by his grandson, John De Lucy, photographs from the collection are published here for the first time. Unlike the set piece propaganda photographs taken by official photographers, the WJ Hawkings Collection shows the day-to-day lives of the Chinese Labour Corps; many of the photographs are believed to be unique in the subject matter they cover.

The profits from the sales of this book will be donated to the Chinese in Britain Forum, registered charity 1096542 ,and used exclusively for raising the awareness and profile of the Chinese Labour Corps.

    I am so proud of my Grandfather’s photography, and of my cousin John De Lucy’s work to put this book together. The video I just saw is wonderful! Well done to everyone involved! I’m sure there are many more involved than my two relatives. Thank you all for your hard work and dedication.
