Fancy fortified position, inherited from the Poms
Now we have moved up in style, this was the first time we came across
prefabricated bunkers in the line. No way would these be referred to as
foxholes, they were too good. This is a rear position plainly, and on The
Hook in 53.
My guess would be that engineers and Korean laborers built
them, not your ordinary line soldier. Those on the forward areas were
under ground, and constructed using solid timber beams for frames and
roof. They were as good as you could hope to get in every defensive way,
and would need a direct hit from a fairly large caliber shell to destroy
I do not know if the Americans or Brits built these, the former I
suspect as the cost could have been out of the Brit range at that time!
Geez I look skinny here, things must have been getting to me by now!
