Hi All
I'd like to post some Chinese uniforms, I guess most of them are unknown to you.

Artillery Captain
Branch insignia on the collar tabs. (Infantry had no branch insignia)

Armor Major
Senior officers wore wool uniforms, while junior officers and EM wore cotton ones.


Female 1st Lt
Officer's rank collar tabs were introduced in 1958 for service occasion, branch collar tabs and shoulder boards were worn only in formal occasion since then.


Engineer Sgt
EM's collar tab is a combination of branch insignia and rank insignia.


Navy Lt


Social occasion uniform (Army Major)
Issued only to senior officers and generals.
