Kowang-san Day 23 October 2017
In October 1952, the Royal Canadians were fighting in Korea, alongside other units of the Canadian Army. It took almost a full month of tenacious resistance and brave fighting to push back Chinese assaults 40 km north of Seoul, in an area known as Hill 355 and nicknamed "Little Gibraltar" due to its prominent size and many defensive positions. The RCR marks this important advancement during the Korean War every year.
