The first convoy over the "Ledo-Road"
passed this point at 2:00 P.M. on 28th January, 1945,
thus establishing a land link with China from India.
The capture of Lashio by the Japanese had
severed China from land communications with the
outside world since May 1942. With the opening of
this road, America is implimenting her promise made to
China in the dark days of retreat, to give our allies the
means to Victory.
