Battle of Kapyong (April 23-25, 1951)
An historic battle of the Korean War and one of Canada’s greatest military achievements. Vastly outnumbered against Communist forces, the 2PPCLI, the 3RAR, the United Kingdom’s 1st Battalion Middlesex Regiment, and New Zealand’s 16RNZA, thwarted a massive enemy offensive in the hills of the Kapyong River Valley.
Later awarded the U.S. Presidential Unit Citation for their valour and heroic defence at Kapyong, no other Canadian Unit has received such an honour before, or since.
