HRS is the designation given this bird prior to changing er'thang all around to USAF system of identifiers. After that fiasco it was identified as H-19. Same aircraft

I WAS A CREW CHIEF OF ONE OF THE HELICOPTERS IN HMR-161 IN
KOREA 1952-1953
I WAS READING THE REMARKS AND ONE OF THEM JOGGED MY MEMORY. IT WAS ABOUT A PICTURE OF A H-19 HELICOPTER AS SANTA CLAUS CHRISTMAS 1952. THAT WAS ONE OF OUR HELICOPTERS. SOME OF THE GUYS IN THE REAR ETCHELON AT ASCOM CITY FIXED IT UP. AND IF MEMORY SERVES ME THEY TOOK PRESENTS TO THE ORPHANGE AT INCHON AND OTHER AREAS, ALSO TO THE LEPROSY COLONY THEY ALSO CAME TO THE FORWARD ETCHELON AND TO THE 1stMARINE DIVISON CP.

When I was in HU-1, I dropped a HRS in the ocean off New Zeeland. Something about a "ground cushion".

I worked on HRS-1,2 and 3"s in the Marine Corps. I was in HMR 362 in 1952, Tustin, Calif., HMR 161 in Korea 1953/54 where we had HRS 1,2, and 3's. In 1956 I helped write the first helicopter school for Marines at Memphis, Tn. called ADH[A1]. The helicopter we taught was the HRS. I have worked on a check crew, worked in the component shop, flew as a crew chief, wrote curriculum, and taught the HRS. To me it was a great machine,but not quite the bird the H34 was.Spent two tours Vietnam with it so I guess I'm partical.

I'm a former Marine Crew Chief from HMM-262 (CH46's)and served in Vietnam from 1967-1968. I have a black and white photo of an HRS-1 that looks to be taken during the Korean War era. The aircraft is painted with a Santa Claus face on the nose of the aircraft and a "Merry Xmas" across the fuselage. Marine Corps BU number 127789. I ran across the photo at an antigue mall and had to have it as I had trained on the H-19 in Millington, TN in 1965-66. I'll try to scan and upload, but the photo is 11X14 and a rather large format.
