READER LETTER: Appeal - Remember Korea Fallen

editorial image

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

The authorities there wish to obtain photographs of those servicemen interred there, and, also of those who died but have no known grave. The photographs will be placed in the man’s records, and, will also be displayed on the walls of the Cemetery Hall of Remembrance for all time.

The following names are some of the young men from the East Midlands area who gave their lives in Korea.

Pte.William.R.Briggs. Pte.Raymond Kinne. Fus.Roland.E.S.Jackson. 2nd.Lt.George.D.Rudge. Gnr.Alan Bond.
