Description

This picture shows a troop of wounded who were sent to Dalny to go aboard a transport that was to take them to Japan. Among them were a number of seriously wounded men, so that a stop had to be made several times to give them a chance to recover their strength. Several of the men were too sick to go on board when they arrived in Dalny. One of these was a young officer who in the third assault on October 29th, half-way up the Cock's Comb (Keekwan), leading a squad of men, had come across a Russian mine. One of his men stumbled over the contact and the entire lower shoulder of the hill was blown into the air, taking with it some twenty-five Japanese. The officer was wounded but kept on, and, rushing forward, half fell, half jumped into the moat, where Russian sharpshooters, hidden in a small fort the size of a hay window, shot him down. Hundreds of Japanese died in that moat before their comrades could kill the Russians in the bay window forts.
