Korea Medal jpg.jpg
In June 1950 Communist North Korea invaded South Korea. The UN sent in troops, including a British contingent. The Royal Fusiliers did not land in Korea until August 1952 and left one year later, in August 1953. They fought with their customary bravery and Fusilier Hodgkinson was awarded a Distinguished Conduct Medal for his bravery in 'Operation Pimlico'.
