Wonsan Landings, October 1950
Amphibious shipping anchored in Wonsan's outer harbor during the landing of the First Marine Division, 26 October 1950. Larger ships present include about 19 LSTs, one LSM, one LSD and about 21 transports (APA & AP) and cargo ships (AKA & AK-types). Three minesweepers are visible at the far right.
This view looks approximately south, with Sin-Do island in the foreground. Umi-Do is the small island in the left distance. Landing beaches on the Kalma Pando peninsula are out of view to the right, as is Wonsan city.
