Korean cemetery looking for photos of those at rest

Have your say

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

The authorities 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 are just some of the young men from Lincolnshire who gave their lives in Korea: Fus Charles H Buckthorpe, Kgn Arnold Ireton, Pte Eric Walker, Mne Reuben Nicholls(RM), 2nd Lt John R K Doig, Rfn Lawrence Bell, Lt Richard J Overton(RN), L/Cpl Cecil Sharpe.

Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and wish to take part can send the photograph to me or contact me by phone for further details.
