Those lost in Korea

First published in Letters by

I ACT on behalf of the authorities at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery at Busan in South Korea, where more than 800 British servicemen are buried.

The authorities there wish to obtain photographs of those servicemen interred at the cemetery and also 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 are just some of the young men from Yorkshire who gave their lives in Korea: Pte.Kenneth E Doneathy, Pte Leslie Brickwood, Tpr Peter G Dixon, Fus Robert South, Gnr Malcolm Tinkler, Fus Peter Dutton, Fus Thomas H Casper, Gnr Robert Harrison, Gnr Joseph Micklewaite, Pte Harry Arno, L/Bdr Richard Hindle and Fus James W Cannon.

Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and wish to take part can send the photograph to me at the address below. For further details you can phone 0161 7897633 or email

You can also phone Brian Hough on 0161 3685622.
