Vladivostock, Russia

Russia's primary port on the Pacific coast, Vladivostock . . .

The Czecho-Slovak troops that fought their way ??? traveled across Russia, to get to Vladivostock and transport by Japanese or American ships.

After the Bolshevik Revolution, Japan landed troops in Vladivostok in support of a White Army under Admiral Kolchak. Japanese ships also transported members of the Czech Legion. Japan retained control of Vladivostock until 1922.

'The "Graphic," in expressing the hope

that Japanese troops will be able to rescue

the Czecho-Slovaks in Siberia, says - "The

American troops at Vladivostock arrived

none too soon, but they show harmony in

their operations."' - The Argus, Melbourne, August 19, 1918 (http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/1410082)
