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.
The photographs 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 names are just a few of the young men from the north east who gave their lives in Korea.
Fus. James Taylor, Gnr. Reginald Morrison, Pte. Gerald Clarke, L/Cpl. Kenneth Newby, Rfn. Thomas Ostle, Pte. Eric Turner, Pte Colin McHale, Pte. Denis Smith, Drv. Nicolas Robson, Pte. Gordon Shiell, Fus. Thomas.H.McNally, WO2. James Morris, Pte. Robert Smith, Lt. Brian Swinbanks, Pte. Leonard R Turnbull, and Gnr. Ralph J Barwick.
Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and wishes to take part, can send the photograph to me, Brian Hough, at 116 Fields Farm Road, Hyde, SK14 3NP.
If more details are required you can phone (0161) 368 5622, or 07467 037742.
