An encircling force, the Chinese 114th Regiment with the 6th Field Artillery Battery, was sent circling south to cross the River Tanai at Kantau. The Chinese regiment collided with the Japanese in a series of sharp actions along two small creeks. The jungle made it difficult for the Chinese to organize and coordinate their attacks; the supporting 6th Battery could not even take part until fields of fire were cut. But as this arduous task was underway, infiltrating parties of the Japanese 55th Infantry Regiment surrounded the battery. The 3/114th, charged with supporting the guns, was split into four fragments, no two of them in contact. The Chinese gunners were forced to fight to save their guns, and themselves, alone.
