Re: Aussie in the Korean War.

Agree. I reckoned 3RAR because they were in Korea from the get-go (part of the British 27th Commonwealth Brigade) which at the time consisted of one British, one Canadian and one Australian battalion/regiment. It was an active player as part of the British Commonwealth Occupational Force (BCOF) Japan prior to the war and given its proximity went straight into it. Many of its personnel were WW2 vets and the battalion's battle honours include the great defensive battle of Kapyong and the offensive action of Maryang San...two great battalion-level (as part of an over-arching brigade action) on both accounts. Cheers, Steve
