May 27, 1950 (Saturday)



On May 27, 1950, Australia withdrew her troops from the occupation forces.


I cited them in these words:

From their distinguished Commander-in-Chief to the last man in the ranks they have rendered model service worthy of the luster of the great nation that bred them. In peace they have emulated their conduct in war and I can pay them no greater tribute than that. I am proud indeed to have been associated with them through the long years of the past decade and will bid them a last farewell with an emotion I cannot express.

With the formation of the Republic of Korea and the withdrawal of American forces, my official connection with Korea ceased.
