CHINA

Order of Wen-Hu (Order of Striped Tiger) China declared war on Germany on the 14th May 1917, shortly after the USA entered the war, but they did not take any significant part in the war. However, a large number of Chinese served with the Labour Corps or RAMC, and many British officers, particularly in those two corps, received the Order of the Striped Tiger (Wen-Hu).

The majority of these awards were made in February 1920. The order was issued in 5 classes and was normally issued as follows: 1st Class for the rank of Field Marshal or General. 2nd Class and 3rd Class for the rank of Colonel and Lieut.-Colonel. 4th Class for the rank of Major and Captains. 5th Class for the rank of Lieutenant or lower ranks.
