On the following day, December 27, after spending the night at the village of Wangmu, an anti-Japanese stronghold, the escape party continued their journey with great caution across the countryside through Japanese lines, accompanied by guerrillas. Chan Chak was carried in a sedan chair. Japanese units patroled the area. The 31-mile journey on this day caused great fatigue.
