The motor torpedo boats, with Chan Chak and the rest of the party, continued their night journey across Mirs Bay, as this chapter describes, avoiding Japanese ships. They stopped at the remote island of Ping Chau and met villagers there, who gave them help and advice on conditions and guerrilla contacts in the Dapeng peninsula on the Chinese mainland, where they were heading.
