Ted Adye (Primary Source)
Ted Adye served with 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (2 PPCLI), the first army unit to see action in the Korean War. He recalls an infamous incident in which his unit came across American soldiers killed during their sleep in February 1951 and also the Battle of Kap’yong in April 1951, at which 2 PPCLI helped push back a Chinese assault. Mr. Adye’s service in Korea ended when he was injured during an enemy attack that followed the heavy shelling of 2 PPCLI’s positions from 10-13 October 1951.
