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.

The authorities there wish to obtain photos of the Servicemen interred there and, also, those who died but have no known grave. The photos will be attached to their records and will also be displayed on the walls of the Cemetery Hall of Remembrance for all time.

The following are just some of the young men from Lancashire who gave their lives in the Korean War:

Kgn John E. Nuttall; Rfn Brian A. Mulligan; Pte Harry Uttley; L/Cpl Dennis Metcalfe; Gunner Gordon Yates; Pte James Lewis; Pte William G. Hillman; Pte Joseph A. Lively; Pte John O’Hara; Rfn George Riding; Pte Arthur H.F. Holmes; S/Lt Richard D. Bradley(RN); WO2 Wilfred Hall; Pte Jack Clayton.

Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War and wishes to take part can send the photo to me at the address below, ring me for details on 0161 789 7633 or email james.grundy102@yahoo.com. You can also call Brian Hough on 0161 368 5622.
