Middlesex crosses the Chongch'on at Sinanju, October 24, 1950

The Chongchon at Sinanju, near the sea, is wide with deep mud banks. On the 24th the British Middlesex 1st Battalion crossed in assault boats. Along with the rest of the 27th British Commonwealth Brigade, 3 RAR crossed that night over the ROK 1st Division bridge at Anju. Less than 6 weeks had elapsed since Eighth Army had been in desperate battle to maintain the perimeter, at Pusan.

But, on October 25, China would enter the war.
