Reader's letter: Details needed

More news, no ads


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 wish to obtain photographs of those Servicemen interred there, and, also of those who died but have no known grave (200+).

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.
