Qing Dynasty army


Recommended Posts

Given the clarity of the photo i would assume @ 1900.

The Chin'g armies wore the Manchu cap for centuries and the Mandarin's dragon emblems would denote his "rank" (Oh, where is that Antique Collectors' magazine article?)...as you know.

A number of other European officers who were with Gordon in the Ever Victorious Army stayed on in Imperial China right through the Boxer war.

A number of others were hired as technical experts-notably artillery officers by the Empress. Some were even KIA in the Japanese war.
