SEARCH: Seeking pictures of servicemen

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 wish to obtain photographs of servicemen interred there, and also of those who died but have no known grave. They will be attached to their records and will also be displayed on the walls of the Cemetery Hall of Remembrance.

The following are just some of the many from the north east who gave their lives in Korea.

Gnr Reginald Morrison, Pte Gerald Clarke, L/Cpl Kenneth Newby, Rfn Thomas Ostle, Sgt Ralph Liddle, Cpl Francis Howse, Pte Eric Turner, Pte Colin McHale, Pte Denis Smith, Pte John B Straughan, Drv Nicholas Robson, Pte Gordon Shell, Fus Thomas H McNally, Lt Brian Swinbanks, Gnr Ralph J Barwick, and Sgt Alfred Wilson.

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, 116 Fields Farm Road, Hyde, SK14 3NP, Cheshire. For further details phone 0161 368 5622 or email
