One of the most complicated and time consuming aspects of the prisoner exchange was the exact listing in all languages of the prisoners held by either side. Chinese and South Korean officers checked the prisoners as they left the trucks and ambulances. For the South Korean officer, this is a sad job. South Koreans held by the communists were badly mistreated, some were dead by the time the ambulances arrived at the exchange point, but this job was routine.
