Share this article

Dear Sir,

The Britishs Korean Veterans Association are hoping to contact former members of HM Armed Froces who served in Korea/Japan from 1950 to 1953 and also those servicemen and women who served in these two places at a later date with the Peace Keeping Force, between 1953 and 1957.

This appeal includes former members of the Merchant Navy, NAAFI, Red Cross and WRVS. Any interested Veteran should contact Brian Hough Esq by writing to 116 Fields Farm Road, Hattersley, Hyde, Cheshire, SK14 3NP and should include a sealed addressed envelope for return correspondence.

The authorities at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery in Busan, South Korea, where over 800 British servicemen are at rest, also wish to obtain photographs of those servicemen interred there and also those who died but have no known grave.

These photographs will be attached to their records and also displayed in the cemetery hall of remembrance.

The following names are just some of the young men from the Aberdeenshire area who gave their lives in Korea. Spr. Robert A. Rennie, Pte. Arthur Buchan, Cpl. Thomas S. Campbell, Sgt. Peter J. Moir, Pte. John Nicholl, Fus. Kenneth G. Murray, Pte. James C. Webster and S/Sgt. Alexander Leslie.

Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950 - 1953 and wish to take part can send the photograph to myself, Mr James R. Grundy at 102 College Croft, Eccles, Greater Manchester, M30 OAN or can call 01617 897633 for more details.

May I thank you in anticipation for any help you can give on this matter.
