The white cross of a soldier’s grave frames a British bugler sounding the last post at the graveside of seven Australian soldiers who have been reburied at the United Nations Military Cemetery at Pusan, Korea. The men were killed during the Korean War, and their bodies were handed over by the communists (North Koreans), under an exchange of war dead scheme known as Operation Glory. They were reburied with full military honors, and a party of officers and men from the 1st Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (1RAR) acted as mourners.
