   My dad (1Lt Charles Carter, C-Company, 1092 Engineers) passed away a little over four
years ago, but before he did I got him to describe all the photos he had.  Several of which
were of the Mallard Bridge…which when I asked where it was he said it was the first
crossing south of the front.
   Low and behold, when I Googled “Mallard Bridge South Korea” the first site I hit was this
one, and the first thing I see is the Mallard Bridge shown immediately south of the DMZ!

This bridge was the first crossing of the Imjin River south of the front.

This photo must have been taken shortly after the start of re-construction of
Mallard Bridge after it was washed out by a flood during the summer rainy season
An image from 2009 shows that no permanent bridge was ever built at the Mallard Bridge site
