Australian troops along with other UN troops were ordered to stop the attack. Their effort against the Chinese advance was a success. The Australian troops lost 32 men in this battle and 53 men were wounded. Operation Commando, an attack on the Chinese, occurred on October 3, 1951 and lasted for days after which the Chinese forces withdrew. 20 Australians were killed in the battle and 89 men were wounded.
