Forgotten Allies: the Chinese Labour Corps in the First World War is a talk by Dr Francis Wood.

Former Keeper of Chinese Collections at the British Library, Frances has written a number of books on China, of which the most recent is Betrayed Ally: China in the Great War. Her talk will uncover the secret treaties, alliances and agreements that various political powers signed behind the scenes while the Chinese Labourers were toiling away at the Front. Frances will be happy to sign copies of her book, which are on sale in the Museum shop.Speaker: Dr Frances Wood
