Description

The snow on the wall at the left shows that this picture was taken when the Manchurian winter had set in. It was on the day after the redoubt "P" had been taken. Within an hour after the successful scaling of the fort the stretcher bearers were on the slope, searching for those who were still alive among the huddled figures on the ground. They moved swiftly along, turning a figure over, giving it a quick look and dropping it with business precision; to another, dropping it to another, pausing, out with the lint, perhaps the hypodermic needle, perhaps a sip from the tea flask, the arms of one bearer hastily passing under the arms of the figure, of the other under the knees, dropping it on the stretcher, passing in and out among the shell holes, down the hill to where the jinrickishaws or Manchurian peasants with stretchers were waiting to transport the wounded on to Dalny.
