text: (242) Camp at River Langnyu 26/11/1936.
text: Before sunrise we moved towards Pangsha with most of the sepoys and the coolies.
text: When we reach open ground and can see above us the bamboo groves around the village we see in front of them some moving figures but they are too far away and when our sepoys move forward they withdraw. Slowly we reach the village which consists of three separate khels. (243) It is much bigger and the khels are further away from each other than we had anticipated. (SKETCH
