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 photographs of those servicemen interred there, and, also of those who died but have no known grave.
Copies of 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 just a few of the young men from the North East who gave their lives in Korea.
Gnr.Reginald Morrison, Pte.Gerald Clarke, L/Cpl.Kenneth Newby, Rfn.Thomas Ostle, Sgt.Ralph Liddle, Drv.Nicholas Robson, Fus.Thomas.H.McNally, Pte.Leslie Jackson, W/O2 James Morris, Pte.Robert Smith, Lt.Brian Swinbanks, 2nd.Lt. Edward.Martin, Fus.George Hodgson, Fus.Alfred Eke.
Any family or friend, who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and wish to take part can send the photograph to me, Brian Hough 116 Fields Farm Road, Hyde, Cheshire, SK14 3NP.
