Brits in Korea

I grumbled a few days ago (end of this post) about the apparently widespread belief that the Korean War was USA+ROK versus China+Norks, with no other nations involved in combat.

A xxxxxx@usmc.mil correspondent wants me to know that the Marines, at least, haven’t forgotten their British comrades-in-arms. He forwarded this article from the Marine Corps Gazette describing the actions in Korea of the Royal Marines 41 Commando. Thank you, Sir.
