A Veteran Recalls the Battle of Kap'Yong

Of the Princess Patricias' many battle honours, the Battle of Kap'yong represents a Canadian first. Beginning around 10 p.m. on Apr. 24, 1951 and lasting into the early hours of Apr. 25, the Princess Patricias withstand a fierce assault by Chinese and North Korean soldiers on the unit's position atop a hill called 677. Veteran Don Hibbs recalls the heroic stand that made the Princess Patricias the only Canadian battalion in history to win a U.S. Presidential Unit Citation for valour.
