Korean War 1950-1953

After North Korea attacked South Korea, UN troops led by the United States invaded the country. China and the Soviet Union back North Korea. The cease-fire leaves the two countries with the pre-war status quo.

Supermarine Seafires, Hawker Sea Furies and Fairey Fireflies from Royal Navy aircraft carriers provided the only British air contribution to the Korean War. The Westland Dragonfly, one of the first Search and Rescue helicopters, was first used in this war.
