Description

This picture was taken Dalny on the day before the last terrible assault on the Two Dragons (Ehrlungshan). The fourth grand attack on the north battery of the East Cock's Comb (Keekwan) had succeeded, the hospitals were full, but a new large crop of wounded was coming in on the next day, and the Red Cross Corps got ready. When the Japanese reached the last moat at the foot of the almost perpendicular wall of the fort, the Russians had prepared a new trap for them. The moat was strewn with straw upon which kerosene had been poured, and when the Japanese soldiers leaped into the moat the kerosene was lighted. In an instant the whole mass was aflame, and many Japanese perished miserably. Few survived, but these few accomplished that for which hundreds died: they made possible the advance. Twenty out of a thousand reached the top and with the aid of those who followed took the fort.
