Whittington was killed in action on 23rd September, 1950 during the
battle for Hill 282. Many of the 17 Argylls lost on that day were killed
by friendly fire. Although I never meet Dickie I have always been very
moved by this picture of him. It was taken in Hong Kong before the battalion
shipped out to Korea. I see a young man happy with his beer. A few months
later he was killed. Very sad.
