Chinese Labour Corps

 

The Forgotten explores an often-overlooked part of Australia’s rich and diverse history – the service and sacrifice of the Chinese Labour Corps who worked under the British and French on the Western Front during the First World War.

It puts the story of the Chinese Labour Corps into the broader history of China’s encounters with western European nations since the 1700s. A part of that story includes the large numbers of Chinese people who immigrated to Australia during this period. It was the sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons of these Chinese settlers who volunteered to fight for Australia during the First World War.

Those men are the Chinese Anzacs. The Forgotten celebrates the shared history between China and Australia and the combined efforts to promote peace.
