When we were liberated by the Americans on August 17, 1945 and according to Eddie Wang's testimony all the seven members of the Duck Team were in the Commandant's office in the Camp to acknowledge the official surrender of the Weihsien concentration Camp to the Allies.

The Commandants' Samurai Swords were surrendered to the victors.

Eddie tells us that Lieutenant James Jess Hannon received one of the two swords.
