The Double Tenth Day celebrates the Wuchang Uprising on October 10th 1911. The uprising took place in what is today the Wuchang district within Wuhan and brought about the end of the Qing Dynasty. This uprising was the first of a series of uprisings across China and by the end of 1911 there was really no doubt that the Qing Dynasty would fall. On February 12th, 1912 Empress Dowager Longyu formally abdicated the throne on behalf of Puyi.

The publisher of this poster, 軍事委員會政治訓練部 "The Political Training Department of the Military Affairs Commission", was a very short-lived yet powerful department, established in March 1926 by 2nd Central Executive Committee of Kuomintang (KMT). At this time, the《军事委员会政治训练部组织大纲》"Organisation Outline for the Political Training Department of the Military Affairs Commissions" stated that the department was not only in charge of overseeing the party, political and cultural affairs within the National Revolutionary Army (NRA) but also it responsible for political appointments within the NRA. The short life of the Political Training Department came to an end, when in order to improve military development and get ready for the Northern Expedition, the Office of Politics of NRA Headquarters was put in its place on 18 June 1926.

The KMT party emblem, blue sky with a white sun symbol (here reproduced in red along the top of the poster), represents the twelve months and the twelve traditional Chinese hours.
