K Force in Korea by Wilfred Poulton

A Soldier's Life in the 16th New Field Regiment

Signed for ex-owner

New Zealand was miltarily involved in Korea from August 1950 to July 1957 as a contributor to the United Nations forces that were deployed to halt communist aggression on the peninsula. It was the first time the Cold War developed into open conflict. The 1st Commonwealth Division, formed in 1951 and conisting of personnel from Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa as well as an Indian medical unit, provided the framework for New Zealand's participation. The main component of K Force was an artillery unit, the 16th New Zealand Field Regiment. But there were other components too, the largest being a transport unit, 10 Transport Company. The Navy depoloyed two frigates, which operated in Korean waters from a Japenese port. In this book K Force veteran Wilfred Poultan tells the story of day to day life in his unit, D Troop 162 Battery. There is much about the grim business of gunnery but Poluton also took an interest in the Korean countryside, the vegetation, the birds, the reptiles, the insects, an animal or two and the fish in the creeks, and recorded his impressions. His account touches on rural Korea, and the extremes of climate with freezing winters, scorching summers and the annual 'rainy season', all so different from his homeland.
