Inchon Invasion, September 1950

 

 

Four LSTs unload men and equipment while "high and dry" at low tide on Inchon’s Red Beach, 16 September 1950, the day after the initial landings there.
USS LST-715 is on the right end of this group, which also includes LST-611, LST-845 and one other. Another LST is beached on the tidal mud flats at the extreme right.
Note bombardment damage to the building in center foreground, many trucks at work, Wolmi-Do island in the left background and the causeway connecting the island to Inchon. Ship in the far distance, just beyond the right end of Wolmi-Do, is USS Lyman K. Swenson (DD-729).
