Description

Yongju area, North Korea, 1950-10-22. Covered by a greatcoat, a North Korean soldier lies on a stretcher and awaits medical evacuation after he had been wounded in the Battle of the Apple Orchard by members of the 3rd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR). Standing with an Owen gun slung over his shoulder, Corporal Mick Hatton (left) casually rests his foot on one of the stretcher's handles. At rear, with a cigarette dangling from his mouth, Sergeant Ian Robertson, an official photographer and member of the Sniper Section, reaches into a bag he has hanging on his shoulder. (Donor I. Robertson) (Compare images P01813.643 and P01813.644)
