1945, January 18-19


Japanese columns moving eastward from Laoag are ambushed at San Mateo bridge on the border with Sarrat. Those who hide in the sugarfields are smoked out and eliminated. This is considered the first and last counter-attack of the enemy in Ilocos Norte and the major setback of the enemy in the province. [Ancheta; Salazar et al]
