George Henry WHITE [1894-????]
"Captain White was one of two officers who for 12 months ran an evasion and intelligence post in western Kwangtung and for most of this time the post was isolated behind the enemy lines. In May 1944 a sudden enemy invasion of the area necessitated a rapid evacuation of the post and the safety of the Chinese staff and all our records on that occasion was solely due to the bravery and cool-headedness of Captain White. With the Chinese officials in a panic and amidst torrential summer rains, Captain White moved the whole party away 20 miles to safety and then immediately set up overland communications by runners with his commanding officer who had remained behind with the guerillas. This area still being threatened by enemy columns, he decided to move his whole party back to Wuchow, a journey of over 100 miles on foot through most difficult mountainous country. En route he collected a party of American Maryknoll Sisters and took them to safety also. At Wuchow he contacted our HQ, collected supplies and cash enough for some months and made the difficult journey back to his post alone. On two subsequent occasions he had to take charge of similar evacuation operations and on each occasion he carried out his duties fearlessly and with complete success. For 2 months in 1945 he was in command of our post at Yanping where he was responsible for evasion in an area of over 50,000 sq miles and during his excellent work 4 parties of American evaders were rescued and brought to safety".
