1. Ashes of 19 Chinese Expeditionary Force (in Burma) soldiers returned to China

    They were brought back on Sept. 13, placed before the portrait of Dr. Sun for a night, and buried on Sept. 14. Sept. 14 1944 was the day on which Tengchong County, where the cemetery locates, was liberated from Japanese occupation.

    As with local tradition, their ashes were escorted into their final resting place under black umbrellas.
