The term China Marines originally referred to those United States Marines from the 4th Marine Regiment who were stationed in Shanghai, China during 1927 - 1941 to protect American citizens and their property in the Shanghai International Settlement during the Chinese Revolution and the Second Sino-Japanese War.
Most of these troops were withdrawn in November 1941, however some them were scheduled to be withdrawn on December 10. The remaining Marines who were the Marine Embassy guards, as well as some US Navy support personnel, for a total of 204 men, were captured by the Imperial Japanese Army and forced into slave labor until they were freed in 1945.
NOW (MEOW), WHO DOES HE REMIND YOU OFF?
BY THE WAY, HIS WORK IS AS SCARCE AS THEY COME. I JUST BOUGHT ALL OF WHICH I FOUND.
