"Since the outbreak of the Pacific War, China and Great Britain have become real allies fighting shoulder to shoulder. Major R. V. Dewar-Durie takes this opportune time to publish the revised edition of his Chinese and English Military Dictionary, which will not only serve as a reference book to the comrades of the Allied Nations but also augurs well for the promotion of liaison and development in military affairs between China and Great Britain." (Introduction). The volume consists of an English-Chinese Vocabulary, a comparative table of ranks for the Army, Navy, and Air-Force together with reproductions of rank-badges, as well as a Chinese-English Vocabulary together with a radical index. Uncommon.
