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 some of the young men from the Tyne and Wear area who gave their lives in Korea:

•Fus Alexander Brotherston

•Fus Issac Corbett

•Pte John.B.Straughan

•Drv Nicholas Robson

•Pte Gordon Shiell

•Fus Thomas H McNally.

•Pte Leslie Jackson

•W/O2 James Morris

•Pte Robert Smith

•Lt Brian Swinbanks

•Pte Leonard R Turnbull.

•Gnr Ralph J Barwick

•Sgt Alfred Wilson

•Pte Ronald Leggett

•Lt John T McGregor (RN)

 Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and wish to take part can send the photograph to me: James Grundy, 102 College Croft, Eccles, Manchester, M300AN – or, for further details, phone 0161 789 7633 or e-mail

 You can also contact Brian Hough on 0161 368 5622.

 Thank you to anyone who can give me help on this matter.

James Grundy,
