BoB: Chinese Warlord film 1930’s

Here’s an interesting find, some footage of the Chinese Warlord troops. Showing some of their equipment and the conditions they fought in. You can spot some Big Sword troops in here as well. And lots of umbrellas. The Chinese Copplestone troops came equipped with them !

Later on there is the international forces in the Shanghai concession – American, British, italian and French including some FT17s. You can spot some Thompson SMGs with the round barrel magazines.

Not sure of its provenance, most likely communist propaganda given the comments about the fecklessness of the Warlord troops, the attitude to the foreign forces and the footage of the revolutionaries. Most seems genuine footage with maybe a bit of staged stuff.
