All the material account books were brought to Kunming, and they were not discarded at the most critical time on the way, mainly due to the work of the administrator Huang Decong. The account book, the list of incineration materials and all the accounts were turned over to the head office, our responsibility had been fully fulfilled so far.
Our retreat route, the Yunnan-Burma Highway, was cut off. We talked with a staff member, named Li Huaiyu of the Tengchong Transport Division who was in charge of temporary installation workers from Yunnan. He knew that there was indeed an ancient post road accessible. He was about 50 years old. From his hometown Manyun Town, he had walked to Bhamo to find a job.
