Salmon Hill, Korea c. 1951. Australian soldiers make their way in single file along a track leading up a steep conical hill. Most of the soldiers are carrying their weapons over their shoulders, while the man second from bottom is carrying a radio set on his back. Some patches of late winter snow lie on the ground among the trees and, at right, snow lies in sheets on the mountains in the background. (AWM P02201.135)


Australian soldiers relax as they are relieved on Salmon Hill by Korean troops of the 6th Republic of Korea (ROK) Division (extreme right). (AWM P01813.442)
