  • Description

    Full title reads: "China. Remembering their comrades in the Celestial Shades. Survivors of battle-tested Division mourn and honour fallen comrades with rites, strange to our eyes, but as in China, since the dawn of time."

    China.

    Chinese soldiers march past camera. They march through gates. Various leaders and dignitaries arrive.

    LS of large decorated building / temple. Troops stand outside. Shoots of offering f food placed before building - presumably part of religious ceremony to remember the dead. Strange chanting can be heard on the soundtrack. Troops bow.

    N.B. Presumably the troops they are remembering died in the defence of Manchuria.
