I am acting on behalf of the authorities at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery Busan South Korea where over 800 British Servicemen are buried.
The authorities there wish to obtain photographs of those servicemen interned 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 some of the young men from the East Midlands area who gave their lives in Korea:
Pte. Dennis H. Buckley Fus. Geoffrey F.Allen Lt. Richard Neville-Jones(RN) L/Cpl. Cecil Sharpe Lt.Frederick B. Millington Lt. Richard J. Overton (RN) Rfn. Lawrence Bell Gnr. Alan Bond Fus. Charles H.Buckthorpe Pte. John H. Rowson Sgt. Neil E. Wykes. Lt. Brian Swinbanks
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 SK14 3NP. If more details are required you can phone me on 0161 368 5622 or 0746 703 7742. You can also email
May I thank you for any help that you can give with this project.
