Picture for today: Korean War evacuation
A wounded ROK [Republic of Korea] soldier is transferred by highline from the heavy cruiser USS St. Paul to the 7th fleet flagship, USS Wisconsin, in Korean waters. He is one of the ROK soldiers who were wounded in a Communist attempt to recapture, by amphibious assault, a ROK held island off the coast of Korea. One wounded North Korean POW was also brought aboard the battleship. [Litters. Transport of sick and wounded.] Korea - miscellaneous. 03/11/1952; U.S. Navy BUMED Library and Archives.
Just for fun...
