Seoul, Tuesday. – The 2nd Division today announced that it received a plaque from the British Commonwealth Forces to commemorate the only time in history that the Royal Artillery served as part of an US Division.
Early this year, British artillerymen supported troops of the 2nd Division on the western front.
The plaque reads “A memento of the first occasion in history on which the Royal Artillery has had the honour to serve as part of a US infantry division”.

I spent over the Christmas period on R&R in Tokyo. On my return the British infantry units were in reserve with the US troops taking their place at the front.
