 Veteran Gao Jinwen: watching Huang Jiguang die with his own eyes


Xinhua News Agency reporter Liu Yi

Gao Jinwen, 96, is in a wheelchair. In recent years, his memory has suffered a serious decline, forgetting many things, but he always remembers Huang Jiguang, 21, and Shangganling in 1952.

At that time, I was the instructor of 82 mortar company of 135 regiment, 45th division of the 15th army of the volunteer army, and Huang Jiguang was the correspondent of the 2nd Battalion of our regiment. We both lived in a cats ear hole Suffering from asthma, Gao Jinwen had to talk and stop.

Huang Jiguang is very lively. He jumps and dances all day long. He is very diligent. Sometimes he finds hay to help me make my bed at night. What a good comrade. Unfortunately, later, I saw him die with my own eyes...

On October 14, 1952, the battle of Shangganling began. During the 44 day fierce battle, the US military successively invested more than 60000 troops, sent out 3000 aircraft and more than 170 tanks, and launched more than 900 attacks on the Shangganling position, which is only 3.7 square kilometers.

The battle for Huang Jiguangs sacrifice began on October 19, at Highland 597.9. Before that, the battle for the surface positions of 597.9 and 537.7 highlands had turned white hot. The enemy attacked during the day and our army recaptured it at night. That night, the volunteers launched a counterattack against the 597.9 highland.

The news of Huang Jiguangs sacrifice spread quickly in tunnels and cats ear caves. The soldiers vowed to avenge Huang Jiguang and the martyrs and hit the enemy hard! But the cruelty of the war was far beyond their imagination.

The enemy again mobilized dozens of planes and hundreds of heavy artillery, and poured ammunition into Shangganling. The ground fortifications previously built by our army have already disappeared. The mountain top has been leveled off for several meters, and the original lush vegetation has not been left,

The officers and soldiers immediately retreated into the tunnel and stood firm.

Unable to capture the tunnel, the enemy blocked the traffic line between the tunnel troops and the rear, and poisoned the water source of the tunnel. Gao Jinwen remembers that the cats ear hole became quiet, and the songs, harmonica sounds, talks and laughter between the previous battles had disappeared. The soldiers were so thirsty that their tongues were bent and their throat was smoky. They could only drink urine, one sip, half a sip, and then they couldnt even drink urine.

On November 25, 1952, the volunteer army fought hard, persevered and fought again and again, finally winning the battle of Shangganling. The anti US war and aid Korea, including this battle, proved that the era of bullying the Chinese people by foreign imperialism is gone.

Comrades! We have won Gao Jinwen ran and yelled in the tunnel. He wanted to share the joy with each comrade in arms.

Boom! Suddenly, the enemys cold artillery exploded in front of the high Jin Dynasty. When the artillery companys comrades came, Gao Jinwen had become a blood man. The gauze of the two satchel bags of the health officer could not stop the blood completely.

I was so lucky that I finally woke up and was quickly sent to the rear hospital to recuperate. Many years later, Gao Jinwen told reporters as if chatting at home, but a dozen shrapnel have not been taken out and left in my head and chest.
