HC Deb 15 July 1952 vol 503 c1969
33. Mr. Gough

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the Commonwealth Division in Korea during the past month has been subject to any heavy enemy offensive attacks; and whether he is in a position to inform the House of the maximum weight of any such attack on any one day in terms of total number of troops used and total number of shells expended.

Mr. Head

No, Sir. Between 22nd and 25th June there was a slight increase in patrol activity of platoon or company strength. In the last fortnight of June there was also an increase in enemy artillery and mortar fire, which reached its peak on 20th June, when about 507 artillery and 89 mortar shells landed in the Commonwealth Division sector.
