"We engaged them about 1 a.m. ft WHS so woody anrl rocky there we could see nothing. Both sides fired. We launched an attack and pushed them back about four miles east toward Tokchon. "We fought all day. TW officers and Jive men were killed. The genera) sent patrols who found a strong foi'cc of them trying to surround us about three miles behind our lead positions. We withdrew 10 high ground. "About midnight (Wednesday) some of our artillery officers came in and said they had been ambushed. Some trucks had been set afire. We sent out a reconnaissance pa- trol. They were ambushed, Fourteen men were killed. Tiien suddenly communications were out. Then we heard mortars and machincgun fire about 600 yards from the command post. We sent a company there. They seized the ground and still are there."
