Chinese ANZACS

I suspect this is a story a lot of us don’t know about; I know I certainly didn’t until I read this.

It has taken almost 100 years but the contribution of the 55 New Zealand-born Chinese enlisted with the NZ Expeditionary Force 1914 to 1919 is now being acknowledged.

Their stories have finally been recognised in by London-based author Alistair Kennedy’s (MBE) Chinese ANZACS publication with assistance from the Auckland War Memorial Museum and Dunedin-based Historian Dr James Ng.
