  The Turkish Brigade had a full turnover of personnel after a period of one years service.
Although only a single brigade served in Korea, it became a practice to number it according to
the year of service. Consequently,  the brigade, which served in Korea for a 10 year period, was
numbered 1 through 10, according to its year of service.  Of these, the first three saw action.
During the service of the 3rd Brigade in 1953, the Korean Armistice was signed. Thereafter,
Turkey continued maintaining forces at full Brigade level for another seven years, in accordance
with United Nations agreements.

From a comparison to other photos, it is believed that both
