Shell fragment is currently fixed to an old IWM exhibition board with photograph of HMS Cruiser Jamaica and the following text: Fragment of shell picked up on the deck of H.M. Cruiser Jamaica after she had been fired upon by a North Korean shore battery on the east coast on 8th July 1950. One shell hit the ship and six men were killed and eight wounded. She was the first ship of any nation to suffer casualties and these were the first British casualties in the Korean Campaign. H.M.S. Jamaica was the first ship to enter Korean waters on 30th June 1950. Three of the five E-boats sunk in the first surface action on 2nd July were destroyed by the Jamaica, which also took the first North Korean Prisoners Of War. She took part in the first bombardment of South Korea at Chumonjin. On 7th July she was the first ship to fire on North Korea (138 six-inch shells at Yangyang). On 7th September she sighted and sank the first enemy mines off Korea. From 13th to 19th September she supported the first big opposed landing of the war at Inchon where she was the first ship of any nation to shoot down enemy aircraft. By the end of the year this ship had steamed 18,000 miles in Korean waters and had fired 2,500 six-inch and 1,000 four-inch shells.
