Just as some posters were published in more than one Province, others were published both with and without an identified Province.
Because of this you will see the same poster here and on one or more Province pages.
Also, some of the posters shown here may have originally had a place designation printed on them, but it has been damaged or obscured. Where this is the case, it will be indicated below the poster.

INTRODUCTION The Great Socialist soldier Lei Feng joined the PLA in Shenyang as a transportation officer. Born in Hunan Province, Wang Cheng County, in poverty of peasant parents. After Liberation the Party sent children of broken or destroyed families to study in school. Lei Feng worked after his graduation from Elementary School. After he joined the army in 1960 he rapidly became a strong revolutionary soldier. In 1962, August 15th, he died in the line of duty. IMAGE 1 Lei Zheng Xin was born in Hunan Province on December 18, 1940 in poverty IMAGE 2 His father Lei Ming Liang spent his whole life persecuted by feudal society. He died unavenged, beaten relentlessly by the Japanese in 1944. Lei Feng's older brother Lei Zhende and his younger brother Lei Sanmin died in succession because of sickness and poverty. IMAGE 3 Little Lei Feng and his mother relied on each other. Raped by a landlord and humiliated his mother killed herself. The lonely Lei Feng had to live by begging and chopping firewood IMAGE 4 When Lei Feng returned home for food the landlord set an evil dog on him and when he cut wood the landlord's wife grabbed his machete and cut the back of his hand in 3 places IMAGE 5 On the eve of Liberation in Hunan the underground Party took him to join in activities to celebrate Liberation. They sent him to Changsha, Rongwan Town to paste revolutionary slogans on the walls. He bravely and efficiently carried out this task with success. IMAGE 6 After Liberation Lei Feng joined Anti-landlord Land Reform activities. As part of the program to educate children of poor peasants the Peoples government sent him to school. He joined the Young Pioneers in 1954 IMAGE 7 Lei Feng loved the Party, loved Chairman Mao, loved everything about New China. One time they went to the Martyrs Park to enjoy Young Pioneers Day and a storm suddenly came. Lei Feng took off his clothes to protect the flag without hesitation.
