More Info: From 22 to 25 of April 1951 around 750 men of the Gloucestershire Regiment and Troop C. 170th Independent Mortar Battery, Royal Artillery, fought a force of over 10,000 Chinese regular troops. Towards the end of the Battle the Glosters were completely surrounded and running out of ammunition. Some men were reduced to fighting with bayonets and fists. Against overwhelming odds the Glosters held the line against the Chinese for four days.
When they were finally given the order to break out only forty men managed to reach safety. The Chinese captured or killed the rest. The Glosters’ actions in delaying the Chinese allowed the rest of the United Nations forces time to regroup and block the advance of the enemy towards the South Korean capital Seoul.
For their heroic stand during the Battle of the Imjin River, Korea April 1951 the Glosters were awarded by the President of the United States of America, the Presidential Unit Citation, the highest American award for collective gallantry in battle.
