A Conscript in Korea


This remarkable story begins with as a young National Serviceman in 1951, the author walked through the gates at the Welch Brigade Training Centre, Brecon, and ends when he walked back into Civvy Street in 1953. Between these dates he went through many life-changing experiences, in particular the twelve months he spent with the 1st Battle Welch Regiment in Korea. He tells his story of this almost forgotten war in graphic detail. Temperatures could drop to -45° with biting Siberian snow-laden winds. In the spring came the monsoons followed by a humid mosquito-laden period.
