India provided medical support to the Korean War effort.

The 60th Indian Field Ambulance and Surgical Unit was a mobile army surgical hospital. The 60th Indian Field Ambulance arrived in Busan on November 20, 1950 to provide medical aid and support to South Korea. The unit consisted of 17 officers and 329 enlisted personnel who brought their own equipment.
The Indian unit divided themselves into two sections; one section served the British Commonwealth troops in the battle zone, while the other section served the local ROK hospitals surrounding Daegu, providing care for the ROK Army and local civilians. In December 1950 the unit formally became a medical evacuation unit for the 27th British Commonwealth Brigade.
The 60th Field Ambulance took part in airborne operations in Korea. India’s first Paratrooper, Lieutenant Colonel Rangaraj, commanded the unit in Korea. Known as “The Maroon Angels”, the parachute unit received two Maha Vir Chakras, six Vir Chakras, one Bar to Vir Chakra, and 25 Mention-in-Despatches while in Korea. Upon their return to India they received the President’s Trophy, the first one of its kind, in recognition of their work during the Korean Campaign.
The 60th Indian Field Ambulance and Surgical Unit provided medical support for four years and then departed South Korea on February 23, 1954.
