Chinese Experience

There do not seem to be any photographs of men of Chinese descent fighting as part of the CEF.  Below, the attestation papers that enlistees filled out are one of the only records we have of Chinese men signing on to fight in Europe.  The few photographs that exist showing anyone Chinese taking part in the Great War, are of members of the Chinese Labour Corps. Also included here are a series of First World War ear Head Tax certificates.
