We were soon on our way up country northward to the current frontline, the Commonwealth Division’s position being just north of the 38th Parallel, where the war had started and by train with very basic comfort.
On arrival at a base camp and the next morning, and I and others posted to 15 Locating Battery’s Able and Baker Sound Ranging Troops, were taken by a 3 ton truck to join our respective Troops. As we were being driven north, a barrage of 25 pounders came as a bit of a thunderous shock! I joined Baker Troop at its base camp just behind Hill 355 (commonly known as Little Gibraltar). This was the most easterly point of the Commonwealth Division’s responsibility, with The Hook feature being it’s most westerly. Little Gibraltar was a very important feature and had been held by both sides during the war.
