Sino-Japanese War 1894-95: The Phyongyang Campaign
: (61 8) 64989833

Mob: 0405 698 799



After swimming across the Taidong River to spy on the enemy, Sergeant Kawasaki Iseo stole a boat to return to his side. Dressed only in his underwear and cap, a sword slung around his back, he uses a bamboo pole to shove off from the river bank as the enemy approaches, glaring back at them with a determined expression. Bullets streak across the water leaving orange trails as the troops fire upon him.
