James COWAN, Army Officer 1928-2005
As a raw lieutenant, he took command in the middle of a battle in the Korean War and was recommended for the Military Cross
By Buzz BOURDON, Special to The Globe and Mail, Wednesday, March 23, 2005, Page S9
Ottawa -- Jim COWAN achieved a rare distinction for an inexperienced 22-year-old army officer when he took command of his infantry company in the middle of a battle. On May 30, 1951, he was a lieutenant with the Second Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, commanding a platoon of 35 infantrymen during their first major action in the Korean War when his company commander was wounded.
Mr. COWAN's seniority got him the job, said John WOODS of Ottawa, one of two other platoon commanders during the battle of Kakhul-Bong almost 54 years ago. "John STRICKLAND of 9 Platoon had lost three-quarters of his platoon in the first five minutes of the attack. [My platoon] came up and took over his position, so Jimmy and I fought side by side up the hill."
Suddenly, word came that their commander, Major Harry BOATES, had been hit by a Chinese mortar bomb. Mr. COWAN sprinted breathlessly over to Mr. WOODS. " What date was your commission?" he asked.
Even in the middle of a battle, it was important for officers to observe certain professional niceties. "Feb. 16, 1948," Mr. WOODS replied.
"That gave him three months seniority over me, [which] entitled him to take over the company."
They discussed what to do next. "We thought about making a full bayonet charge with both platoons, but we decided... it would have been suicidal."
The Second Battalion, which had formed at Camp Petawawa, Ontario, less than a month after North Korea invaded South Korea on July 25, 1950, had trained at Fort Lewis, Washington., before shipping out on May 4, 1951. Placed under the command of the 25th U.S. Division, it had been advancing north of Seoul when it was ordered to capture the heavily fortified 500-metre summit of Kakhul-Bong and the village of Chail-li beyond it.
D Company, including Mr. COWAN and his men of 10 Platoon, had been told to take the main objective -- the twin peaks of Kakhul-Bong. At 6: 30 a.m., Major BOATES sent his three platoons leapfrogging forward until they were pinned down by Chinese machine-gun fire. A driving rainstorm that started at 7 a.m. didn't help matters. Not long after, Major BOATES was wounded and Mr. COWAN took over the attack.
"Jimmy was very cool and very professional," said Mr. WOODS, who remained a lifelong friend. "The way he accepted the responsibility of taking command was very impressive."
A handful of men advanced to within six metres of the summit of Kakhul-Bong, only to be stopped by heavy fire. "Victory was so near -- yet so far. Below, the Chinese could be seen concentrating in substantial numbers for a counterattack," wrote G.R. Stevens in The Royal Canadian Regiment, Volume Two, 1933-66.
"Determined to deny them access to the Chorwon Plains -- to which Kakhul was virtually the key -- the enemy opened up with mortar and artillery fire. In pelting rain and with no high ground for observation, it was obvious he was firing from guns which had been previously dug in and ranged," wrote correspondent Bill BOSS of The Canadian Press. For three hours, both Mr. COWAN and Mr. WOODS deployed their platoons "in a bombardment not seen by this correspondent since... the Second World War."
Mr. COWAN radioed battalion headquarters that his right flank was entirely exposed, reported that 3,000 Chinese soldiers in the valley below were preparing a counterattack and said he had only 70 men left. Brigadier-General John ROCKINGHAM, commander of 25 Canadian Infantry Brigade Group, ordered him to disengage.
Second Battalion had suffered six dead and 25 wounded. Both Mr. COWAN and Mr. WOODS were recommended for the Military Cross. Years later, Mr. COWAN, who had been wounded that day, said that "becoming a company commander while under fire is an experience no young man ever forgets."
The son of a Toronto police officer, Mr. COWAN joined the cadet corps of the 48th Highlanders of Canada at 13. He was commissioned into the regiment seven years later before volunteering for the regular army in 1950. After the Korean War, he followed the conventional career path of thousands of officers, including battalion and staff postings in Canada and Europe.
In 1953, he enjoyed an unusual job for an army officer when he cruised the North Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Pacific as ground-liaison officer aboard the aircraft carrier H.M.C.S. Magnificent. While in Halifax aboard Magnificent, he met a navy nurse named Betty-June BALLANTYN and they became sweethearts. Then, after spending a number of years in Vietnam and Laos as part of the International Truce Commission, Mr. COWAN returned home in 1957 and they married.
The next 13 years saw Mr. COWAN and his family assigned to postings around the world, including stops in India, Germany and the United States. He commanded his original unit, the Second Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment, in Soest, West Germany, from 1968 to 1970. He retired from the Canadian Forces in 1982 as a brigadier-general. He later spent seven years as Chief Executive Officer and priory secretary of Saint John Ambulance.
Brigadier-General James Albert COWAN was born on September 30, 1928, in Toronto. He died of lung cancer on January 1, 2005, in North Bay, Ontario He was 76. He is survived by his wife, Betty-June, sons Ian and Scott and brother Bill.
He was predeceased by his brother Dave and his sister Jean.
He will be interred with full military honours in Ottawa's National Military Cemetery in May.

CLARK
--In loving memory of our dear Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Eleanor CLARK, who passed away on January 11, 2004.
God looked around his garden and
He found an empty place
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest,
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering,
He knew you were in pain,
He knew that you would never
Get well on earth again.
He saw that the road was getting rough,
And the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, "Peace Be Thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Always loved and sadly missed by children Allen CLARK (Dianne), Margaret STRINGER (Tom), Marilyn FARQUHAR (Mike), Ken CLARK (Shelley), Ann PARSONS (Eric), and Jim CLARK (Melody), and families.
