Lei Feng in pictures
Lei Feng (December 18, 1940 – August 15, 1962) was a soldier of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and is now a household name and cultural icon in China symbolizing selflessness, modesty and dedication.
Lei's name has crept into people's hearts, daily conversation, music and even movies in China; his image can be found on cups, T-shirts, bags and memorabilia.
Since we are approaching March 5, the official "Learn from Lei Feng Day", we are offering a collection of photos about him, showing Lei in real life, posters and appearing on memorablilia.
