As early as the pre-stage large-scale bombardment of the Indian border post my position, the position of its artillery firing positions and other fortifications target was our artillery firmly nailed to the square of the online shooting drawing board.

Indian main artillery positions were destroyed, the loss of fire support; partially military artillery fortifications are destroyed, reducing the resistance of the army infantry.

Especially after the Indian Army 7th Infantry Brigade command post with each battalion, company command post was army artillery fire hit, breakdown in communications, command and liaison between the up and down quickly on the basic paralyzed.

Indian Army 7th Infantry Brigade quarter-Pratt 达尔维准将 memoir "Himalayan blunder" one wrote:

"October 20, 1962 5:00 o'clock (Note: New Delhi time)., Across the bridge Three Chinese army fought two rounds flares followed by more than 150 pieces of artillery and heavy mortar shells pouring in Tuggerah forefront hillside on. we III bridge, the bridge position number four, chapter and more gun positions, logistics base, wooden bridge, temporary bridge and 7th brigade brigade of roughly 1,000 yards from the river bank, are subject to heavy bombardment. Chinese army using a self-loading, automatic cannon 76 mm and 122 mm mortar transmitted (author note: Delvine understand our artillery equipment and the number, but the assessment of the effect of our artillery fire index is passable.). "

"This is the moment of truth. At this point, Tuggerah ridge is no longer a piece of land, but the measure, test, refine India's foreign policy and defense policy of the laboratory furnace. Roaring cannons from our heads, there is a few minutes to everyone stunned. this quiet scene with the state so far in contrast, is more alarming. Being so close to both armies, but also makes people feel seems hard to believe. incident began. this is a miscalculation years, many months end of hope and anxiety for many days, and it is chaos, terror end of the week. Incident of the day, India will never forget the each primary this Indian history textbooks will be recorded in this sad story of disgraced. s Day Long battle will definitely give Barney Pat battle and battle of Plassey discredit. "

"In the Chinese army launched an offensive a few minutes, the 7th Brigade that is falling apart. In any case, in order to reinforce or reverse the situation have been hopeless. I do not have back-up troops. I was soon cut off communication links with each camp. Since the destruction of all telephone lines, the battalion commander who could not get in touch with their company commander. radio transceiver radio operator who also stopped, because the Chinese army began to attack their headquarters, they have to defend themselves. "

After the army launched a general offensive campaign, Delvine Brigadier soon found his brigade and battalion command post, communications and liaison between even interrupted, in "was surrounded by Chinese troops superior forces, could not stick," that is under He determined to withdraw to escape. Delvine originally planned to withdraw to the chapter and more ready to take advantage of more favorable terrain chapter organized second-line troops stick.

However, in the process from the color Delvine brother Long ditch to escape in a multi-chapter, found that the Indian Army has been beaten army gunfire "pieces, with head and tail can not care," he was "the main part of the same brigade lost connect". When Delvine led by a small number of people fled south, and soon found a multi-chapter has been occupied by the army, "Go multi-chapter does not make sense," they "climb up to 18,500 feet in the winter pull Motian" and continue to be headed for the Long Boop direction.

Delvine After two days and nights of the trek, and finally in the early morning of October 22, embarked on Ha Long Boop east pulled to the road. At this point, Delvine being "intoxicated to determine the direction of their own line of high technology", confirm that they have escaped from the Chinese frontier forces encirclement ring.

October 22, 0900, the Tibet Military Area Command infantry troops Tibetan word 419 154 82 mortar is a second round even brave escape from the chase grams Long section of the Indian region. The even 62 officers and men to carry six 82 mm mortars and ammunition, although per capita weight more than 70 pounds, but all of them high morale, no one was left behind in the chase.

2 even when the gun chase near Long Boop, deputy commander Peng Jun to find mule trail not far from the forest there are Indian, company commander, deputy commander Peng Wu Shuanzhu and immediately organized the whole company to carry pistols, rifles, submachine guns of more than a dozen officers and men into the forest, the Indian Army lateral line, these shares quickly surrounded the Indian army, forcing the Indian 7th infantry brigade quarter-Pratt 达尔维准将 and fellow independent 17th paratrooper battalion commander Tal Captain Val 9 people surrender, seized a machine gun and rifles, submachine guns 8.

After the war, 154 mortar round is a 82 second even awarded a collective merit.

However, even the gun 2 officers and men do not know they captured prisoners in Indian Army brigadier has Delvine, because there was no translation staff in both China and India, each other's language.

The 7th brigade of the prisoner of the captives of our army will recognize the passage of Darwi brigade (middle).

Time to Tibet 419 Director of the Political Department of the Tibet, Memorant Recall:

154 groups, 155 regiments chased overnight, Tibet 419 troops command houses hiped with the troops, and the second day caught Darfar. He ran to the mountains, there is no thing to eat, and hungry and frozen will come to the road next to the road. The troops were chasing, which made 154 regiments, and the army didn't see this. When he couldn't see it, he didn't know why he was, and he did not translate it. Several soldiers were put on him, I and Chaihongquan commander When he passed from there, he also gave us a gift from there.

That night, we were in Longbu She, which is a place in the Indian army. The troops also pursued, because the political department was prisoned by the prisoners, and the political department did not have a guard troad. I called a few soldiers who came to the cooking class to watch these prisoners. Later I found English translation Hong Bangyu, I said: "What is the position of the captive on the road? What is it?" Chang Dalvi! "Hong Bangyu translated is unhappy, come back to tell me:" He is the 7th Brigade Changdalvi! "I don't believe it, I have to ask him personally.

I personally ask: "What do you have anything to prove that you are Darfar?" He said that he did not have to wear a military dress when he was running, but he only wore a shirt, but there was a photo in the shirt pocket. It was his 7 tour. The fourth army Chang Coke sent him, asked him to eat, he and Cal in the back garden. He let me see the photo, I ask him what there is any prove that he said no, next to a captured print airborne soldier said: "I can prove that he is a 7-bribery Changdalvi."

I will ask Darfar, why do you admit that you are a brigadier? He said: "This is a regulations." Dalvi recognizes the identity because the Indian army is more familiar with the International Convention, and they have experience in the battle between the two countries. The Indian army has a regulation. Darwi's rank is quasi.

I asked if he was caught in the trouble? He said: "No! You see my golden ring, gold watches. Your army is a civilized army." I asked what he needs? He said: "Please give me a few smoke."

I won't smoke, the Junfa Tang Zhengzheng Committee does not smoke, and Cao Zongkui will smoke. I said to Cao Zongkui: "You lend me two packs of smoke." He tied to the smoke, but he heard that Darvi would say, "I didn't hesitate to say:" I will give you two packs. "This is solved. Darfar's smoke addiction.

I ask him what do he still? He said that it is very thirsty, I said to the prisoner of the prisoner: "You go back to the hembled milk can." Milk is also seized from the print army. I asked him what he still need, he said no need. He said to me: "You can rest assured that these people (referred to in the printed army) will not find anything, I will make them old and the rules."

The next morning, I said to him: "In order to ensure your safety, send you to the rear."

In the three days before the army, he ate fruit sugar, sugar, and gave him a few cigarettes. After he was full, he fell asleep. Chief of Stone Head, the Tibetan Military Region, and the director of Lu Yishan said with him, giving him the reason for the friendship between China and Indian people and the conflict.
