Korea. c. 1951. Troops of 3rd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR), had a busy time in brushes with Communist troops as the Korean winter fades to a freezing, slushy end. Seen here are troops of B Company giving covering fire to one of their sections, pinned down in front of a Communist position. In the foreground, reloading an SMLE No. Mk III' .303 calibre, is Private Alf Lees of Sydney, NSW.
