Thanks Bill, for finishing what I started. For a more detailed 
description of the Hill 185 area:

The New Breed The History Of The U S Marines In Korea
by Andrew Geer
Published 1952


Hill 185 is discussed specifically on p.198ff. There exist many accounts 
of battle from the area, but this one describes the area better than most.
