Russian drinking cart at Dalny


Russian drinking cart at Dalny



Date Created


In this picture we see a number of Japanese soldiers around one of the drinking water carts captured from the Russians. The Russians believed Port Arthur to be impregnable. They did not believe that any power on earth could ever oust them from the peninsula which they had leased from China, and they had spent a vast amount of treasure and labor in creating a first-class modern port at Dalny. When the Japanese drove them behind the forts of Port Arthur, the Russians found it impossible to remove from Dalny all their supplies or all their invaluable implements, so that the Japanese found here a great array of things that they could utilize to good advantage. Among these were the Russian drinking water carts, which were at once taken possession of by the Japanese commissary department. The man in the foreground with the band on his left arm is a Red Cross officer who has just been inspecting the water cart.
