Korea, c. 1950-11. A propaganda sign scrawled on the wall of a Korean house probably by retreating North Korean soldiers. The sign reads, with mispellings: 'American officers and soldiers: 5 000 miles from home, fighting 30000000 Koreams (sic) and behind them are 475000000 Chinses (sic). What can bombs do? They canont (sic) kill all our people, They can only stiffen our fighting spirit.' Some Korean characters are written on the post at right. (Donor I. Robertson)
