The Order of Wen-Hu (English – The Order of the Striped Tiger) was an award for military or naval service awarded by the Republic of China. It was issued in five classes. The badge showed a striped tiger in natural colours on a central medallion.[1] During World War I, a large number of Chinese served with both the Chinese Labour Corps and the Royal Army Medical Corps, and many British officers, particularly in those two corps, received the order.[2] The majority were issued in February 1920.[2]
