'This original photograph by Associated  Press and from my own collection, has a caption that reads: 'Mass Held at 'Happy Valley' Monument'. Chaplain Major John Ryan of  Leighlinbridge, County Carlow, Eire, conducts mass at the Dedication Ceremony of a Monument to 200 British dead who fell in 'Happy Valley' Korea, fighting a rearguard action in January. The Monument constructed by a Korean stonemason is to the men of the 1st battalion, The Royal Ulster Rifles, The 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars and the 170th Independent Mortar Battery, Royal Artillery.'
