The Chinese Labour Corps on the Western Front
When Britain realised with horror that the war would last longer than expected and was taking its toll on their soldiers at the Western Front, they looked east to China to recruit men who could provide logistical help behind the lines. Near on 100,000 men were shipped over from the province of Shandong to the battlefields of northern France and Flanders. This was the Chinese Labour Corps and, together with a further 40,000 employed by the French, they would become the largest foreign labour corps to serve the Allies during World War I.

This talk will be given by documentary filmmaker Peng Wenlan, who led The Meridian Society’s three-year heritage project in researching and recording the story of the CLC.
