Bathing in the Imjin River was fine ... when it was warm enough, flowing enough, free of decomposing
bodies or not in flood. During the periods when bathing was not in order, the shower units pumped and provided a great hot shower and soap for we
grotty diggers. I've seen photos of our friends in the opposite trenches doing their bathing in giant communal tubs ... in the caves they had dug
to back up their main lines. As with we diggers, they seemed cheerful enough for the change.
