Happy Valley: Forgotten Battle of 'The Forgotten War'


Jul 24, 2013

The Battle of Happy Valley is known as the forgotten battle of the forgotten war.

It saw the Royal Ulster Rifles defending the city of Seoul on the night of the 3rd January 1951 from Chinese attack. It allowed thousands of residents to flee the city before it fell to the Chinese the next day.

One hundred and fifty seven members of the Ulsters were killed that night. In the second of our special reports in the build up to the 60th anniversary on Saturday, we report on a group of veterans who went back to Korea to revisit the battlefield.
