before the incident and we are engaged in exercises in Japan — and is how we exercise the withdrawal
Mukden Incident, I just Beidaying Seventh Brigade’s troops — that is, independent of Mukden Incident, the Japanese after the first bombing of the railway the object of attack.
In fact, the Japanese have long wanted to play us
is not to play before they are basically in the lawless northeast. At that time, the size of the station at full-speed railway line has troops, and armored vehicle on patrol day and night and from time to time, but also by the concession to the Japanese military police, the police maintain. Did not dare to offend the Japanese, that we, sir, are often stressed, must not conflict with the Japanese.
our tour is the Northeast’s most elite military units, often to the Japanese resident harassment. The summer of 1931, first in Japan to visit the old officers, to look around our camp. Later, there are often heavily armed Japanese soldiers, in small groups through the “visit” the name to Beidaying to make trouble, and sometimes provoke us directly. We all hated teeth itch, but the Executive to prevent hands — Northeast Army discipline is very strict, especially when we travel.
we all know, sooner or later, the Japanese will be hands-on. We privately with chatter that often, then, must be severely learned these “small nose.”
weather is cold, the Japanese exercise more up. That a few nights before the incident, the Japanese daily exercise late. In addition to the Kwantung Army, Manchuria Railway subsidiary to transfer to them to soldiers in the village also made a weapon. We often take to the streets of the brothers came back and said some of the city in the pub shouting that the Japanese ronin, a few days will “look to the color of the Chinese people.”
Brigadier Wang Zhe could not see out, has done a preparedness — September 13 to 15 at night, our three-night consecutive sub-east spur big playground for East Camp transfer exercise. Executive say the aim is that once the Japanese invaded in order to get away in an orderly manner, not chicken surprise; but also to take shelter in their front, waiting for a diplomatic solution.
9 月 18 day, full of Japanese troops in the south railway station on the wall of the bulletin, said at the recent fall of Mukden garrison parade, full of iron nearby residents not to panic. But the brothers came back from that place, said South Station and the Japanese soldiers packed the Veterans, but also pull out a lot of guns, the situation is not good.
situation is certainly not good, but we did not expect the Japanese to this day on the hands.
nine hundred and eighteen shots, our Executive not in Beidaying
we did not expect, our Executive who seems to have no thought – - Incident occurs, the head of our brigade commander, and three were not in Beidaying.
all know that sooner or later the Japanese hands, but no one has been carefully prepared, are holding a kind of luck, looking forward to the Japanese does not have the ambition — In retrospect, it probably one kind of mentality conquered it.
I still remember, nine hundred and eighteen seventh day of the eighth lunar month is just the day, the days of our payment of salaries.
22:00, we are asleep, heard a bomb explosion — the Japanese track parts from Beidaying close, only a mile or so, we have heard, but did not Then the Japanese would call a thought.
(At this point, Zhang Yuan in Beijing. Northeastern border guards agency Executive Jinzhou Chang with his father in his hometown for the funeral. Brigadier Yangcheng Shen Wang Zhe to participate in social activities.) Three heads are back home, only the brigade chief of staff Zhaozhen Fan living in the camp.
us several times more than the Japanese, but the Executive is not to play. In order to escape, and finally we shoot
little while after the explosion, gun, rifle sound rang, and the louder the closer. Soon, we will have artillery shells fell inside the camp. Until the company commander to call us, we know, the Japanese came to play.
our company commander was just the night duty officer. Call the enemy, and not any in the head, he put the four companies of the battalion commander all together, and then ordered the troops into combat roles.
we picked up a rifle, ready to fight. This time again command, told us to withdraw to. We do not understand, some people cry, some people criticize it, and some even face to face questioning from the Executive: “The Japanese want us to life, why can not we fight back ?!”
Japanese quickly over the Western Wall, scored 621 on the first group of camp. We rush orders, etc., who knows so to was “not allowed to act rashly, not fight back, on standby, the best is still lying in bed does not move, do not open the gun library” commands.
commander us together, let’s cover on standby. We watched, the fire, the shadows save before moving west barracks, shooting constantly, constantly throwing himself was screams. Usually trained in a playground brother, now chasing the Japanese hit, but did not dare fight back, now think of it, I was also sad it.
we are anxiously waiting. Withdrawal to the brothers, said: The Japanese soldiers broke into the barracks, telling anyone to kill, and some people do not move in bed, the bed was hit by the assassination of the Japanese alive. Although some people holding a gun, but was not allowed to fight back, chasing the Japanese soldiers shot and killed.
we asked the company commander, came to fight the Japanese, we have to let them stab you in bed? Company commander was said to listen to commands.
but listen to what order? Cut the telephone line to the Japanese. Japanese soldiers dressed in yellow uniforms, wearing tortoise hat, shouting numerous opposite in our Shasha, and with the spirit shook the same. Company commander saw no way to say: we fight it, do not wait for commands!
we have this shot. Name of the name, I suddenly felt a hot — touched his face, damp, followed up on pain, small devils gun it!
care was not on the tube, plus want revenge, there is still fire, until ordered to by the exercise program we have a large playground Camp east transfer. Large playground to the east after that, I Zuidou was punctured, the gums and teeth are playing no more.
my pretty lucky. The last inventory, the light we have a class on the death of six.
I was under the Yixian Formation of Henan people, 17 Chang Tso-lin when the nominal time when recruitment of soldiers to return home. Mukden Incident, the withdrawal of troops within the DPRK relations, Executive told us, Zhang said, want to go home can go. I think when a soldier to the last, boring, do not want to go home, go on to Harbin.(edit: SN015) to share:
