Korea War Map from August 1952

June 25, 1950: Anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War

This map has been marked to show the disposition of friendly and enemy troops in a sector of Korea in August 1952. The 15th Infantry was occupying and defending positions on Line Jamestown. Ambuscades were conducted nightly to capture enemy troops. Outpost positions occupied by the regiment are marked on the map-Kelly, Bubble, Big and Little Nori (two knolls 250 yards apart), Tessie, Nick, and Hill, the last of which was a daytime listening post. Little Nori was occupied by the post commander and three squads of men armed with Ml rifles, automatic rifles, carbines, and light machine guns.
