Queen's Korea Medal 1st type

22233876 Fus J Mussett RNF

With copy casualty roll entry.

The 1st Battalion Royal Northumberland Fusiliers formed part of 29th Infantry Brigade and arrived in Korea in December 1950.

The Battle of the Imjin River, took place 22–25 April 1951 Forces from the Peoples Republic of China attacked United Nations (UN) positions on the lower Imjin River in an attempt to achieve a breakthrough and recapture the South Korean capital Seoul. The attack was part of the Chinese Fifth Phase Campaign, also known as the Chinese Spring Offensive, the aim of which was to regain the initiative on the battlefield after a successful UN counter-offensive in March 1951 had allowed UN forces to establish themselves beyond the 38th Parallel at Line Kansas.

The section of the UN line where the battle took place was defended primarily by British troops of 29th Infantry Brigade, consisting of three British and one Belgian Infantry Battalion supported by tanks and artillery. Despite facing a significantly numerically superior enemy, the brigade held its positions for three days. When the units of the 29th Infantry Brigade were ultimately forced to fall back, their actions in the Battle of the Imjin River together with those of other UN forces, for example in the Battle of Kapyong, had blunted the impetus of the Chinese offensive and allowed UN forces to retreat to prepared defensive positions north of Seoul, where the Chinese were halted.
