Tony has been searching on eBay for possibly interesting items relating to the WW1 Chinese Labour Corps attached to the British Army. He has found a "certificate of attestation" of a Private Albert Arthur Edgar whose address was SE London. We think he was "demobbed" in 1921, after the war, but at some stage he was involved with the Chinese Labour Corps. As he was British, it's likely that he was in charge of Chinese labourers in some capacity. We are posting a couple of images from the certificate that Tony bought on-line as possibly the most interesting - there is a British Army service number that could help elucidate his background from the Forces on-line web site if someone has a subscription to this site.
