The backbone of the British and Commonwealth armies was the regular soldier. At the start of the war they may have lacked practical experience, but were well-trained professionals, and likely to be led by men who had fought for several years during WWII. The Commonwealth Brigade soldier who fought in Korea showed himself a capable force and only added to the laurels of the distinguished history of the British and Commonwealth forces.
A unit of renown from the Korean War is the 1st Battalion, The Gloucestershire Regiment, �The Glorious Glosters�, whose motto is �By our deeds we are known�. In fact, by their deeds they are remembered for a dramatic feat of arms at the Battle of the Imjin River, 22�25 April 1951.
