Hill 770 is immediately below the label "Kyoam-san" in lower right.

The pencil markings near the middle right are points Don had zeroed-in during Nov. and Dec. 1951. He is unsure about the E1 through E5 markings but we think that they may have identified where E Company was during Operation Nomad.

This digital map is especially useful for studying the Kumsong area.
