sangat membangkitkan keingintahuan ketika ada yang mengaku sebagai Supriyadi, konon pada peristiwa Blitar itu ada berita kalau Supriyadi kemudian menemui Tan Malaka di Bayah.
saya tertarik dengan keterangan kalau supriyadi kemudian mengungsi ke bayah mencari tan malaka. tidak ada keterangan baru dalam soal ini di buku From Jail to Jail dari helen jarvis kecuali referensinya: The most substantial uprising during the Japanese occupation of Indonesia occured at Blitar, East Java, on 14 february 1945. The local PETA unit rose under the leadership of Supriyadi. The revolt was quickly smashed by the Japanese and six of the leaders were executed. Supriyadi was never seen again and is presumed to hav been killed in the fighting. At the time,however, it was widely believed that he had gone into hiding to wait a better time to strike and on the strength of this belief, he was named as minister of defense of First Indonesian cabinet (ref: kanahele, "japanese occupation" pp. 185-88; Japanese p 205 ; soekarno p 190ff ; anderson, some aspect pp46-47; kertapati, sekitar pp 44-46 and notosusanto, pemberontakan tentera peta blitar melawan djepang). In possible confusion with Tan Malaka, one Japaneese source reports that Supriyadi fled to Bayah, where he worked in the coal mine (Miyamoto Shizuo, Jawa Shusen shoriki, p. 22).
