Comments: I have pictures from my Dad's time in Korea. He enlisted in the USMC April of 1951. And was in Korea sometime in mid to late 1951. He was on Hill 749...one picture is of a bunker his unit used. Here are some names from the pictures. Sgt Brasher, team leader. Freeby was from 10th replacement draft. Kuben was the Korean houseboy. Gulbrandsen was a guy from Florida. Andy Andersen, Gerasimos, Kerferl, Ash, Rodgers, Gavin. My Dad passed away in 2000. I would love to share these pics with any of his old team and/or family members of those guys. I also know he was involved in attacks at with Luke the Gooks Castle.

Comments: Hello,

I am looking for pictures of the Korean war era version of the 1st Anglico patch. It was a yellow arrowhead with a red number one in the middle with some writing said 1st Anglico on it. My grandfather cannot find his. From my understanding an originals are hard to come by. Modern 1st Anglico patches look nothing the original. My grandfather was with the 1st anglico in Korea attached to the 1st Marines of the 1st Marine Division.

Any help would be appreciated.

Comments: Belay the request under this same heading. The SgtMaj has advised that the head situation on the USS Iowa is not satisfactory for a Marine Corps Ball, and especially those ladies with their fine gowns. To hold the Marine Corps Ball on board the Iowa, 1st ANGLICO would have to rent porta johns, and obviously that isn't feasible.

his memory is gone as he didn't remember me or any thing
else about that time. I'm sure Jim MacInturff would

BEFORE D-DAY AT INCHON

Unit: 1ST ANGLICO FMF

Service or Relationship: MARINE VETERAN

Comments: Two authors are currently working on books that will include ANGLICO history during the Korean War. I'm working to assist with info to post on the ANGLICO forum for their use.

A confusing issue has arisen, one of many, due to the lack of official records for 1st ANGLICO or those detached as 1st Signal Battalion.

I have photos of a Marine who landed on or near Inchon PRIOR TO D-day. The account by Gen. Krulak ("First to Fight") states that the Army's request for Marine Raiders (apparently didn't exist after 1944) was rejected by the Marines - the Raiders and other allied special units were to recon the area prior to D-day.

There are so many conflicts among the vague accounts, that I can't figure out what happened. Were ANGLICO Marines recruited for such a mission by McArthur without approval from Marine Corps command? Does anyone know anything about pre-Inchon landing reconnaisance mission? Were ANGLICO Marines in place to call in NGF?

Is all this B.S.?

Are there any official documents about ANGLICO ops?

Does anyone have books to recommend that would assist me in unravelling the details of ANGLICO support for all the units it supported?

Thanks, and Semper Fi,

Comments: The website for the ANGLICO Assoc. is down, our outstanding former webmaster unable to continue, and I've been asked to rebuild it.

The new ANGLICO Association website will take some months to reconstruct, as many of the photos and files will have to be recovered.

We have this static public website, under construction now, and we have an interactive, restricted-access forum. Links to both are at www.1anglico.org. Contact me to gain access to the restricted ANGLICO forum.

Our Korean War collection of historical documents and images is growing slowly but steadily. But this segment of our earliest history is difficult to reconstruct, as our teams were detached to other units. Two authors are currently penning books on ANGLICO's entire history, and have access not only to the Korean War Project, but also to the ANGLICO Assoc. and ANGLICO forum information.

Unit: 1ST. ANGLICO FMF AIR PLATOON

Service or Relationship: MARINE VETERAN

Comments: Bob Arnold's comments did not cover information about the Air Platoon since he was with Naval Gunfire Platoon.
While stationed at the reclaimed Camp Catlin quonsets these air teams trained at Makua Valley, calling air strikes via field radios with planes from aircraft carriers located at Pearl Harbor. Teams were rotated to Korea in 6 month intervals, usually relieving each team before them attached to the KMC's. First groups were sent to the Yalu River area and were overrun by the Chinese, then moved to the Punch Bowl area, but few air strikes available particularly during the winter of 51-52....teams worked with artilery part of the time because our radio communications. As the war moved to the south/west near the 8th parellel and the DMZ (before it was so deisgnated)aircraft (mostly AD's) were more plentiful and lent great support for napalm coverage in the open "no-mans-land" area's between the more mountainous zones. Pilots from Austrailia and England participated.
Korean Marines's had little equipment or artillery and were vunerable to Chinese and N Korean combat troups. The KMC's and our air teams were too far forward for most USMC regiment artillery support so 1st Anglico air support was effective. Air team members, Sgt Eli Basquin was awarded the Bronze Star w/Combat "V" and Sgt Bob Richardson received a Special Commendation Medal on Marine Corp Birthday Regiment Parade Nov.'52 by FMF Commanding General Franklin Hart at Pearl Harbor. Anglico team members and pictures are available.

Unit: FIRST ANGLICO FMF PAC 1950 TO 1953

Service or Relationship: NAVY VETERAN

Comments: Perhaps one of the most elite, and least known activities of the U.S. Marine Corps was the action of the First Air and Naval Gunfire Liaison Company ( First Anglico), Fleet Marine Force, Pacific, which served from 1950 to 1953. Trained and home-based at Camp Catlin, Nimitz Highway, just outside Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, all officers and enlisted in this prestigious unit were required to have an IQ of 115 or better. First Anglico consisted of 12 teams of 12 men each. Each team contained one officer artillery spotter, one officer Marine naval avaitor for close air support. and one naval officer for Naval gunfire support. Each team had nine communications specialists complete with required radio equipment. Most of us spent numerous days and nights on the Kahoolawe Hawaii Naval Gunfire target Island,in the bunker, spotting Naval Gunfire projectiles. Every U.S.NAVY AND nato GUNSHIP that passed thru Pearl Harbor had to qualify in shore bombardment on actual targets. This included Destroyers, Light Cruisers, Heavy Cruisers and 16 inch Battleships. Almost every Marine regiment in Korea had a First Anglico team in its forward observation post. Marine regiment commanders knew the importance to the ground troops of close support, and First Anglico supplied numerous close support missions. At a later stage in the Korean war, First Anglico teams were stationed on the offshore islands of North Korea's western side, with a six-gun destroyer ( six 5" 50 caliber naval rifles) in support, to deny the communists the use of the coastal highway. Because of the enlisted's high IQ, many later went to the Marine Corps officer school in Quantico, Virginia, and were commissioned. The First Anglico teams contributed greatly to the protection of the ground troops and the success of the korean War.

I have many pictures and old letters he wrote but know little of his life during that time. Any information at all would be appreciated. Also trying to identify people in photos, may be people in his unit. Thank you.
