• Short Summary

    Chinese soldiers practice fighting with bayonets then march past General Chang Chun.

  • Description

    Titles read: "CHINA ON PARADE" (Dublin issue).

    Changtu (?), China.

    Various shots of Chinese soldiers using bayonets in practice fighting. They wear protective clothing and helmets. We then see several shots of a military parade to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the Chinese revolution, watched by General Chang Chun. Soldiers, cavalry, tanks and aircraft go by.

    Some of this footage may be same or similar to scenes in CHINA'S MODERN ARMY in 42/97 (see separate record for details) but there are more shots here.
