90mm shots from 1st Plt, A Company, 1st Tk Bn, making up for the two M26s it lost at the Second Naktong fight on 5 Sept. Probably also has some 3.5in rocket and 75mm RR hits. These were the six T-34s and 200 infantry that had been sent from Seoul against the Inchon landings, running into the Fifth Marines the morning of 17 Sept. Marine tanks claimed 5 of 6, but all tanks were hit by all weapons, except the first, taken out by an outpost bazookaman, who was KIA in the effort.
The combat had barely concluded when General Douglas MacArthur, Admiral Arthur Struble and a dozen other generals drove up with X Corps staff officers and a gaggle of reporters. The made-to-order publicity scene lay before them, as the marines surveyed their handiwork.
