Raymond Deed and Dudley Goodwin - American clothing and frostbite

Running time
36 sec
Date made
Department of Veterans' Affairs


We had uniforms that they used in the Second World War and we had them in Korea. We weren 't equipped for the weather in Korea until the Yanks came in and gave us winter clothing.

There was only one thing wrong was with their footwear. They had these snow pack boots and that put me and few others in hospital with frostbite. That was the trouble with the boots. The clothing was good but not the footwear.
