Recommended Posts

Came across a few photos of those South Korean Soldiers that were assigned directly to British and British Commonwealth Units during the Korean War, an exact usage of ROK personnel like the U.S. Army's KATUSA program, ROKs were also integrated into Belgian and the Dutch Battalions apparently.

First up from an unknown unit 1953.

Other KATCOMs one with the Aussies,  with the one in the  Beret, which would be a Dark Blue at this date, is I believe a member of the British 1st Battalion  Durham Light Infantry.

Again with the Aussies, that cap badge is a new one for that period, The Royal Australian Regiment.

British KATCOMS interestingly assigned to a Royal Signals Unit, the Cap Badge is a new version, searches indicate it was for the berets, not sure, we guess though its adopted in the post war late 40s.
