Post-War and Korea 1946 to 1953

Post War and Korea 1946 to 1953

Japanese defeat in WWII led to Australian troops joining the British Commonwealth Occupation Force (BCOF) in Japan, while in September 1947 the Australian Regular Army was formed. Australia joined a multinational force on the Korean peninsula to fight North Korean and Chinese Communist forces in a short, but bloody war between 1950 and 1953 that has technically not ended.

Army: Courage. Initiative. Respect. Teamwork.
