Re: Aussie in the Korean War.

Great work Jaimie and equally great to see another Anzac on the site. He reflects the growing change (that started mid-WW2) in the way the Australian soldier's equipment blended with a mix of Brit/U.S. and a sprinkling of home-grown manufactured items and the fact that the then fledgling Australian Regular Army went into Korea (I assume he is 3RAR - 3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment?) very much dressed and equipped to fight World War Two - including the venerable MkIII SMLE. A very nice touch with the 3rd Pattern GSB-emblazoned winter fur hat. Cheers for sharing, Steve
