    Default Imjin River battlefield

    I went to the Imjin River battlegrounds for the first time where the 29th British
    Commonweath and Chinese Communist Forces met and it was a nice, but
    difficult trip. It was my first time to come across strictly British ordinance and relics
    so some objects I recognize and some I don't. I'd appreciate in help in i.d.ing them.

    Specially the last several objects. Also, anyone know why the different types of 9mm casings?

    Hi, you have a Mills No.36 grenade, a Sten gun magazine, 2 inch mortar fins, and some 9mm & .38 rounds.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the info guys~!

    I was there only once and even then for a short time so I don't have
    many other pictures, but here's a few more of my finds.

    It was nice being able to make out the manufacturing date on the 2 inch
    mortar tail. You can also see the pressure prongs for landmines. They are
    the exact type of prong for a U.S. M2 or M3 landmine. Thankfully I didn't
    come across any actual landmines. You can clearly make out the release pin
    ring if they decided to make a tripwire for it.

    Love the Mills... lovely but lethal!

    Great finds though. Shame you didn't have more time, looks like a promising site!

    Great posting and it brings back some memories. I was stationed in Korea in 1998 and was able to go on a military history staff ride up on Gloster Hill in the same area. Some of the discussions were pretty dull so I wandered around and within 15 minutes was able to collect several rifle bullets and casings. Would have loved to spend a little more time there.

    That Mills 36 will be highly unstable, i would leave it alone unless you really know what you're doing even then i think most BD teams would destroy in situ especially if its not a populated area, the effects of the blast are really something to see on these, ive personally witnessed a piece of red hot shrapnel land a few feet away from us 200yds away from detonation
