Japanese wounded entering hospital at Dalny



Date Created


The sea attack on Port Arthur began on February 9, 1904, at noon. The land isolation
occurred on May 26th. when the Second Army, under General Oku, took Nanshan Hill. The
four grand series of Russian defences from Nanshan down the peninsula were taken in quick
succession, and on the 12th day of August, after the two outposts of Port Arthur, immediately in front of the main line of fortifications, were taken, the real siege began, which was to
last four months and nineteen days.
On May 29th Dalny was occupied by the Japanese, and was at once made the base of all
their operations against Port Arthur and of the hospital service. Many of the Russian government buildings and store houses were used for hospital purposes, to make room for the
thousands upon thousands of wounded who kept pouring in. The hospitals were so full at
times that new arrivals had to be deposited in the street, where they staid until a place could
be provided for them.
