STORY BY: Robert Kury
YEAR: 1950
LOCATION: Kapyong Valley, South Korea

Recently, Bob heard an interview on CBC radio with a veteran of the battle of Kapyong, also known as the Battle of Jiaping. A small group of Canadians held off a much larger group of Chinese soldiers, using 50mm cannons and heavy mortars, while the Chinese were at a disadvantage, fighting uphill. Thanks for sharing, Bob.
