Reds Fired on Them
Without Warning,
Freed Marines Say
By tho Associated Press
TSINGTAO, China, April 2.—Four
American Marines released by the
Chinese Communists after three
months’ captivity said today they
were fired on without warning by
the Reds.
Corpl. William L. Pollard of Fort
Worth, Tex., said the fifth Leather
neck in the Christmas duck hunting
party fell mortally wounded in the
first blast. He was Pfc. Charles J.
Brayton, jr., of Governors Island,
N. Y.
Released at the coastal city of
Haiyang north of here yesterday,
the four Marines said they did not
know the Chinese they saw Christ
mas day were Communists.
Did Not Return Reds’ Fire.
‘‘We thought they wgre Nation
alist troops, so we waved our hats
and hollered ‘Meikuo’ (American
Marines),” Pollard said.
"Then they opened fire point
blank at us from about 200 yards.”
Pollard said the Marines did not
return the Communists’ fire.
"When the Reds stopped firing
we stood up from behind the jeep
where we had run for shelter,” he
went on. “I saw Brayton lying on
his back. He was bleeding from a
wound in his arm.”
Pollard said the Communists re
fused to let the Marines adminis
ter first aid to Brayton.
Brig. Gen. G. C. Thomas, com
manding Fleet Marine Forces in the
Western Pacific, said Brayton’s body
would be returned to Marine head-1
quarters here in a few days. He'
did not elaborate.
Reds Were “Poor Shots.”
Pollard said the Communists were |
“poor shots—otherwise we all would j
have been killed.”
After refusing to permit them to|
give first aid to the wounded Ma
rine, Pollard said, the Reds made
them put Brayton into the jeep.
“That was the last time we saw
him alive,” he added.
"The only wound we saw on him
was in his arm, but later one of
the Communists told us he had two
wounds .in his chest and that he
died in a first aid station.”
The other Marines, liberated after
three months of negotiations be
tween the Navy and the Commun
ists, are Pfc.. Carrol W. Dickerson,
Olathe, Kans.; Pvt. Robert Hart.
Pittsburgh, Pa., and Pfc. Thomas
Kapodistria, Buffalo, N. Y.
