Night attack on the Hook hill (War in Korea 1952)

In Korea on the night of 18 November 1952 the Chinese launched a massed night attack on an important hill called the Hook.
Inniskilling Lieutenant Michael Anstice moved his Centurion tank up to support the infantry. In the middle of a fierce battle his tank was hit by a Chinese rocket which wounded the driver and started a fire.
Lance-Corporal Pete Williamson got out and put out the fire. They got the driver to safety and continued the battle for nine hours, eventually driving off the Chinese. Michael Anstice was awarded the Military Cross.
