This will be a bit short as there are few surviving photos from the battle and many of the ones I had in the previous post would have been somewhat redundant on what was highlighted. Interestingly that even in late 1952 there were still a fair amount of WWII pattern gear being worn.
Here we have the post war M1948 boots, which were very similar to the famous WWII paratrooper boots. The difference being that the WWII boots had a two piece sole (so there was a leather area in the arch) and a bevel on the heal. The M1948s had a single piece sole and regular square heel. The shirt worn by the wounded man is the post war pattern fatigue shirt. I’ve seen some different models in HBT and sateen but the spec usually says 1947 pattern. Both have the WWII style HBT pants though as identified by the large thigh pockets.
So there you have it, Korea was a juxtaposition of the the old and new, even in the later years. Uniforms from the previous war but flak jackets that would be at home in the next.
