Hill 355(Little Gibraltar)
After just six years of peacetime, the Royal 22nd Regiment, now three battalions strong, is once again called into action. This time they are sent to Korea alongside members of the Royal Canadian Regiment, the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry and other United Nations forces. Vastly outnumbered by Chinese troops, the Van Doos distinguish themselves during a bloody 96-hour battle for a snowy hill known only as Hill 355.
The 2nd battalion of the Patricias fought valiantly in the Korean War between 1950 and 1953, receiving the Distinguished Unit Citation from the President of the United States for the battalion's stand near Kapyong in April 1951. As a result, the battalion received a four-foot-long streamer, which is attached to the pike of the regimental colours.
