Description

Hill Salmon, Korea, 1951-04-16. A member of C Company, 3rd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR), leans against the rear wall of a trench after the company's capture of Hill Salmon from Chinese troops. The butt of the soldier's .303 rifle is visible as the weapon rests on the parapet of the trench, pointing outwards in readiness for any attack. (Donor I. Robertson)
