The North China Marine: Newspaper Published By and For the Marines

The North China Marine newspaper was published by and for the Marines stationed in North China after the conclusion of World War II. The image here comes from this link which featured an original edition that is for sale. I assume by now it has been sold.

I am looking for information on whether copies of this publication are available online, on microfilm or conserved in their original print editions. Please contact me. Thanks!

The North China Marine was originally published by the Marines in Peking and Tientsin prior to the war, from June through November 1941. It replaced the Peking Marine and the Tientsin Marine, both published monthly. But as their numbers dropped the two publications were replaced by the North China Marine. The only way to find copies is to find men who kept the originals.

I have about 30+ issues of "The North China Marine" as my grandfather served there for over two years. All of them are in excellent condition. My favorite is the one with the headline "Gandhi Murdered". E-mail me at if you have any interest in seeing them.
