Action in Korea.

WITH Able Seaman J Robertson, Leading Seaman John Jessop wiped out a Communist ammunition dump at Wonsan, on the east Korean coast with a bit of "old fashioned gunnery". The two were at their stations in the destroyer HMS Comus when the highly-specialised director control, which co-ordinated range and firing of all guns, was unable to act in a heavy smokescreen. On their own volition the two seamen fired 30 rounds of 4.5 inch shells on to the ammunition dump, which was destroyed.
