3in Mortar and M4A3E8 Sherman

Put in defilade by the Easy Eight Sherman, which also observes target impact, a 3 inch Aussie mortar crew is in action, wearing new wind-proof jackets and pants, and pile hats, against the cold.

3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment distinguished itself in Korea in a number of engagements. In its first fight the Aussies, using mainly rifles and bayonets, routed a North Korean regiment.
