The poster "Military-Civilian Friendship Match" depicts a friendship match held between soldiers and civilians in a rural setting in China. In the image, set in an ordinary Chinese village, people gather around a stack of harvested grains for a friendly match that bridges the gap between the military and civilians. There is a sense of unity and camaraderie, with no barriers between the soldiers and farmers.

On the scoreboard to the right of the image, it can be seen that the match is between a guard company of the Chinese People's Liberation Army and the local Red Guard militia. At that moment, the guard company leads the Red Guard militia with a score of 48 to 44. This is meant to portray a harmonious relationship between the military and the people, where soldiers and civilians come together for an enjoyable event.

The poster symbolizes the strong bond between the Chinese People's Liberation Army and the populace. It reflects the emphasis placed on unity and mutual understanding, showcasing how soldiers and civilians share common ground and engage in friendly competition.

This is an original vintage poster created during the Chinese Cultural Revolution. It is in excellent condition. We fully guarantee the authenticity of all items we sell.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
