50th. Anniversary of the Korean War is almost upon us and it
seems appropriate that once again we have the opportunity to give prominence
to our ship - HMS Amethyst. Some six months after her memorable escape
from the Chinese on the Yangtze River, sadly not without casualties, she
was back, facing up to them again and the North Koreans.
