No Poppies for Chinamen: From Shandong to the Somme
by Tony Richings

>>>DOWNLOAD BOOK No Poppies for Chinamen: From Shandong to the Somme

During World War One, 140,000 Chinese labourers were contracted to perform logistical support tasks on the Western Front, 100,000 with the British and a further 40,000 with the French. They weren’t armed, they were civilians, although prior to going to France, they underwent a form of military training, short of being trained with weapons, and they were exposed to much of the horror that was to be the War to End All Wars. This is the story of Captain Charlie Armstrong and his life-changing experiences with the Chinese Labour Corps, the CLC as it became known. It is a tale of a Geordie coal miner who enlisted in the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers in 1910 to escape life ‘down the pit’. He is sent to the Western Front at the outbreak of hostilities in 1914. Wounded in early 1916, he is recruited while recuperating from his injuries to serve with the CLC towards the end of that year. Travelling to Shandong province in China, he becomes involved in the recruitment and training of hundreds of Chinese ‘coolies’ contracted to carry out logistical roles, thus freeing up British and French nationals to shed their blood for their respected Empires. Later, Armstrong sails to France with a CLC contingent he helped to train, arriving back at the Front in early 1918. We follow the actions of the Captain and his men as they deploy to support Allied fighting troops and the bigoted response to their efforts from so many of those they were assisting. Underlying the story of Charlie Armstrong’s struggle with the effects of the injuries he sustained in the early part of the war is the struggle the men of the fledgling Chinese Republic need to face in order to gain recognition for both themselves and their new nation.
