"In the aftermath of the Second World War (1939-1945), communities were still coming to terms with the devastation which that conflict had caused, and the millions it had killed. Yet only five years after the end of this war, another was to break out, and again Australia would commit its forces. It was the Korean War.

Korea was a place that few Australians knew much about, until 1950. From 1950-53, 17,000 Australians in the Army, Navy and Air Force fought as part of the United Nations (UN) multinational force, defending South Korea from the Communist force of North Korea.

Yes, those who study the Korean War, know along other UN nation, the "ANZACs" fought very effectively. Just like in Vietnam over a decade later.

I grew up in the '90s telling people about the battle of Kapyong that I learnt about at the Australian War Memorial. Most Australians still don't even know we fought in Korea.

Actually most of our biggest migrant populations these days have come from lands where Australians have fought. I like telling em about the time Australian troops fought in their lands.

Most Australians still don't even know we fought in Korea.

Most Americans don't know we were there either. Even in the '85, my Mom mentioned to someone I was in the US Army in Korea. They did not know we had troops there …
