Send details of servicemen

I am acting on behalf of the authorities at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery Busan, South Korea , where more than 800 British servicemen are buried.

Sunday, 3rd June 2018, 1:00 pm

The authorities there wish to obtain photographs of the servicemen interred there, and also of those who died, but have no known grave – over 200.

Copies of the photographs will be placed in the men’s records and will also be displayed on the walls of the Cemetery Hall of Remembrance for all time.

The following names are just some of the young men from the North East who gave their lives in Korea: Pte Gerald Clarke, L/Cpl Kenneth Newby, Rfn Thomas Ostle, Sgt Ralph Liddle, Pte Robert Smith, Drv Nicholas Robson, Fus Thomas H McNally, Pte Leslie Jackson, W/O2 James Morris, Lt Brian Swinbanks, Pte Leonard R Turnbull, Gnr Ralph J Barwick, Sgt Alfred Wilson.

Any family or friend who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and who wishes to take part can send the photograph to me.
