 The 102-year-old founding Colonel died with more than a dozen pieces of shrapnel left behind by the anti-Japanese war.


According to the public resume, Qin Guang was born in 1917 and joined the Red Army of Chinese Workers and Peasants in November 1930. He joined the Communist Youth League in 1931 and became a full member of the Communist Party in 1936. Qin Guang participated in the Long March, the War of Resistance Against Japan, the War of Liberation, the War of Resistance Against the United States and Aid the DPRK. He was awarded the rank of Colonel of the Chinese Peoples Liberation Army in 1955 and was awarded the Medal of 81, Independence and Freedom and Liberation.

According to an article in Shijiazhuang Daily in August 2010 entitled Qin Guang: An Immortal Anti-Japanese Hero, the 93-year-old veteran Red Army soldier in a common dormitory building of the Hebei Provincial Reserve Bureau was still in good spirits. Qin laughed at Shijiazhuang Daily reporters and said, I have been a steel-reinforced bone for a long time. When I beat ghosts, I left over a dozen pieces of shrapnel on my body, which has never been seen. Theres something to take out.

Reported that in early 1941, Japan dispatched commander Junliu Tian to North China to launch an unprecedented large-scale sweep of the army and civilians in Western Shandong. The Japanese troops are divided into six routes and adopt the tactics of dividing advance and joint attack in an attempt to destroy our anti-Japanese base area in Luxi at one stroke and to eliminate the main forces of our army and the head organs of the Party, government and army. At that time, Qin Guanggang was ordered to be an assistant instructor in the Third Battalion of the Western Shandong Military Region (the Military Guard Battalion), and participated in the extremely heroic and tragic Sucun blockade battle.

The Third Battalion arrived in Sucun on the morning of January 17 that year and saw six cars full of Japanese troops coming at full speed. When the enemy entered our crossfire circle, the battalion commander pointed at the barrel gun and shouted hit. The machine gun and rifle that had been aimed long ago fired together. There was a loud bang, and smoke rose in flames, and the enemys cars stopped moving. The uninjured Japanese army rolled down from the car one after another and then formed a battle formation. They rushed forward to the position of the 9th company in the east of the village with their rifles straightened out. They were immediately shot by our fierce firepower, killing more than half of them. At noon, the enemies who came to reinforce the village had been surrounded by cars and soldiers, blocked all the retreats with heavy and light machine guns, and the whole village was surrounded like a barrel of water.

After the fierce battle, the enemy suffered heavy casualties, and our casualties were very large. Only more than 20 people, such as Qin Guang, were still resisting tenaciously in the southwestern corner of Sucun. The enemy began to give off poison gas, which made everyone cough and shed tears and runny nose. Seeing that it was getting dark, Qin Guang led his comrades to break through the encirclement and rush to the westernmost courtyard of Sucun. The enemy found them in the hospital and dropped bombs at the door. The shrapnel went through the door and injured Qin Guangs head. He pulled out a big shrapnel with his finger. His face was covered with blood and he endured great pain. He got up and threw down two of the three enemies who had rushed into the courtyard through the window. At this time, the poison gas seeps into the room through the cracks in the doors and windows. It is difficult to breathe and cant breathe like a big stone slab pressing against the chest. They each drank a bowl of vinegar and continued to resist. Finally, the enemy climbed onto the roof, stabbed a hole in the roof, threw a gas bomb down, and everyone fainted one after another. When Qin Guang came to life, he found himself lying in the courtyard with his hands tied back. The enemy dragged more than twenty wounded and poisoned soldiers into the street, and more than a dozen ghost soldiers pointed bayonets at them.

In defiance of international law, the aggressors detained more than 20 poisoned and injured comrades in batches and massacred them in Maidi, southeast of Sucun. Six ghosts took the last seven comrades outside the village, and Qin Guang was detained at the end. On the way to the execution ground, the enemy stabbed our comrades with bayonets, and the returning enemy wiped blood from the bayonet with his hat. At that time, he thought that a Communist Party member, an old Red Army soldier, must not die like a sheep under the butchers knife of the aggressor, even if he died, he would waste a few bullets of the enemy. Thought of this, Qin Guang ordered in a low voice: Forward transmission, ready to run! When he reached the open ground, he shouted Comrades run fast, and everyone immediately dispersed and the enemy fired hastily. A bullet from the enemy penetrated Qin Guangs left shoulder just a few dozen meters away. He staggered and continued running. Another bullet penetrated his right back, penetrated his lungs, and fell to the ground with endless blood flow. Qin Guang couldnt bear to lie down and die. He struggled to turn it over and saw an enemy running to his head with a gun. As he spit blood, he shouted in a hoarse voice, Down with the Japanese warlords and chaebols! Then he tilted his head, closed his eyes, and fired a bullet from his right neck and left back. Qin Guang fainted instantly. Later, Sun Yuwen, the battalion secretary, found him and carried him to the shelter of the South advancing detachment of the nearby village with the villagers. He was rescued by a doctor. Qin Guang is extremely grateful to the anti-Japanese soldiers and civilians in Hebei, Shandong and Henan for their deep feelings, which can not be forgotten till now.

Soon after, the reporter of Jinjin Newspaper interviewed Qin Guang in the sanatorium, and then the Cultural Life Newspaper and Jinjin Newspaper published articles praising him as an immortal soldier - a living martyr, a fighting hero, a national hero. The army poet Xia Chuan called Qin Guang flag-bearer in his long report poems. The name of the hero is like a red flag that never falls! After the end of the anti mop fighting, the military region held a Party Congress in fan County town. Qin Guang attended the meeting as a model to carry out the campaign of three models (exemplary cadres, exemplary party members and model branches). The head of the army called on the whole region to learn from him.

Sucuns blockade battle lasted from early morning to dusk. Our Luxi Military Region, which also teaches the third brigade and the Third Battalion battalion headquarters of the third battalion, has two platoons of more than 130 troops, four platoons and four platoons. With their own flesh and blood, they have built a copper wall and iron wall, blocked and restrained the Japanese armys six-way joint attack, destroyed the enemys meat-knife tactics, defeated the joint attack of the army and air force, which boasts an invincible Great Japanese Imperial Army of more than ten times its strength, killed more than 400 Japanese troops and wounded count It has covered the security transfer of the head office of the border region and the local military and civilian, safeguarded the base area of Hebei, Shandong and Henan, and written a glorious page for the history of the war of resistance against Japan in the border area of Hebei, Shandong and Henan.

The Shijiazhuang Daily also reported that in the winter of 1942, the anti-Japanese struggle behind the enemy was more complex and difficult. The superior divides the Northwest Shandong Third Army subarea formerly managed by 115 Division into the 7th Army subarea of southern Hebei under the 129 Division system. Ma Benzhai was appointed Commander of the 7th Military Region and Head of the Hui Peoples Detachment. At the same time, the arrival of the Hui Peoples Detachment strengthened the Partys leadership and military strength against Japan, and was welcomed by the local army and people.

In March 1943, Qin Guangdao, then the political commissar of the detachment, moved to Zhangliuzhao Village, Guanxian County, where the situation was very complicated and the troops were always on alert. One morning, the enemy was found in the east of the station. The enemy exploded a hole in the wall of the village. At that time, the enemy was also found in the south of the village. Seeing the enemy fishing for fish, one man came to surround our army every dozen meters, one could see that it was the enemys iron wall. Qinguangduan Second Squadron broke south along a Southwest anti-Japanese road ditch. When it reached 3400 meters northeast of Fanzhuang, it was sidetracked by the enemy forces occupying Nandongzhuang and blocked by the Japanese puppet forces at the southern crossroads. In view of this situation, Qin Guang feared that the concentrated breakthrough would be easily killed by enemy artillery. In order to reduce casualties, he decided to disperse the breakthrough. When they broke through to a distance of 100 meters from the enemy, they were stubbornly blocked by the enemy. Qin Guang grabbed two grenades from the soldiers, jumped out of the ditch and shouted, Comrades rush with me. When he rushed to the enemy about 30 meters away, he threw a grenade into the enemy group. When he wanted to throw the second one, a bullet hit him in the waist and he fell to the ground. At this time, under the cover of grenade smoke, the troops rushed out of the encirclement, and the enemy immediately pursued them with fire. Lying on the ground, Qin Guang thought that there were still three bullets in the pistol. If they penetrated the gut, they would kill themselves. He touched the big egg wound with his hand, which contained ribs. He thought that since there was no possibility of penetration and life, he thought that the enemy would not stay here for a long time, so he decided to lie down and pretend to die. When the ghost went away, Qin Guangcai struggled to stand up and looked at many comrades lying in the northwest. He endured pain and looked at them one by one. There were 63 people in total. The enemy treated the Chinese so severely that even the dead could not let go. They repaired knives and guns for every wounded person. Some wounds were as big as their own. They were wounded by the enemy using chemical weapons prohibited by international conventions. . After the enemy left, the villagers used donkeys to send Qin Guang across the blockade line. The commander of the seven districts in southern Hebei Province sent a cavalry correspondent from Mabenzhai to the district field hospital for surgery. More than a dozen pieces of shrapnel were sewn up in the waist during the operation. After liberation, they could not be taken out after consultation with several large hospitals. Qin Guang was forever left with the historical witness of the Japanese aggressorsatrocities. The Shijiazhuang Daily reported that at the end of the interview, Qin Lao readily wrote several passionate words about the spirit of the Anti-Japanese War will last forever for reporters, aiming to warn future generations to remember history, not forget national shame, and use the great spirit of the Anti-Japanese War to inspire national will and create a better tomorrow.
