"The Japanese are still withdrawing in their Sittang bridgehead to the north toward Myit-kyo," states a Rangoon correspondent. "Gurkhas made two unsuccessful attempts with the aid of an air strike to capture a village south-east of Myit-kyo. "Yesterday will long be remembered by our troops in South Burma. It provided the worst deluge of this monsoon. Rain fell in torrents for 18 hours. In none of the three monsoons we have known have such abnormal conditions been experienced. I have just returned from a tour of the war district, where the whole countryside looks as if it had been overwhelmed by the bursting of a giant dam." . .-, ■ ■„ The Japanese in Burma are pullins out of their recently-established bridgehead across the Sittang River. To the north they are still disputing the British hold on their withdrawal, route from Toungoo to Mawchi.
