I was in the Marines, Charlie Co. First Eng. Batt. 1 Reg. 1 Div. (Chestie Puller Was the CEO). Missed the Inchon battle because the ship I was on was caught in a typhoon off the Alution islands. We were ordered to port at yokahoma Japan for 1 month and than enter north Korea at Wanson harbor. We spent the winter (-30F deg) in Koto-re (Chosin resovir area). The Chinese surrounded the 1st Marine Div. and blew the bridge which was the only way out of the area. The Air Corps air droped bridge sections so we could leave the area with all of our equipment and board ship at Hungnam to leave the area. We brought 100,000 North Korean citizens with us to Pusan.

Hi. Thank you for your complimentary comments on the Australians. One note is that the Rifle used throughout the conflict by Australians was the No 1 Mk.3, not the number 4 as you describe. All photos on your site show the No 1 in Australian hands. Australia never built or used the number 4, instead continuing production of the No 1 after WW2 and up until the issue of the SLR 7.62 in 1960.

Admin reply: Hi Phil,

Thanks for your correction. Nearly all my Aussie mates from RAR are now dead, and those possibly still vertical rarely communicate with anyone. They have vetted all Aussie-relevant technical data on my KW sites, but of course considered weapons as working tools rather than objects of history. So your comment is doubtless correct but they can no longer debate the issue, and my own personal weapons were our .45 and M1. My site is very extensive, so If you will send me a keyword group for errors you would like corrected I will be scan for them and do my best.

Best regards, Bert

Good information. It's helping me to document for family-my father's experiences, Frank Armenta Jr., and the battles his company experienced from July 1950 to Sept 1951 - from when the unit landed in Pusan and battled up the peninsula to the Yalu River. His company was Co E, 9th Inf Regt, 2d Battalion, 2d Inf Div. Unfortunately, many of our MIAs came from his unit during 28 Nov-1 Dec 1950.

I was 9 years old when the Korean War ended. I remember watching the return of our prisoners on my parents black and white TV. I don't know why that memory has stuck with me all these years.

My uncle rupert george bullock died on 26th january 1952. This site has given me lots of new information. there is a photo of him on here that my family does not have. is there any way we could get a printable copy of it? I would love to print one for my mum, aunties & uncles. thanking you for great information that was not known

Admin reply: Thanks for your feedback!

The heart-touching account about George was supplied to Aussie Album by Olwyn Green,

widow of 3rd Btnís first commander who was also killed in Korea. I doubt she has a better photo, but here is her last known email address should you care to contact her.

My grandfather was there in 1953. He was with the USMC, C-1-5, he was wounded on Outpost Reno during the Nevada Cities battles. I was sent to Korea as my first duty station with the Army, 49 years later, during the 50th Anniversary in South Korea (they have it foe 3 years, so from 2000-2003). I'm an amateur scriptwriter and want to write a film script about the battle at Reno.

I have been trying to trace an Uncle's Military Record. When he was alive he told me I would not be able to. I have contacted many , many places for some sign of him but no luck. I only met him briefly we are not a close family. The Military records center called me and apologized for not finding his records and gave me his RA# and date of enlistment which was 12-3-1947. We have a picture of him in uniform and the military museum told me he was in the Army Core of Engineers. They could not find him either. His name was Robert Robinson from Worcester, MA. He did say he worked in a motor pool repairing vehicles and it was like having a 9-5 job in the army. That's it all I have. Any suggestions?
