A MEMORIAL museum dedicated to the many thousands of young men from the forces of the United Nations who gave their lives (including 1,082 from the UK) during the Korean War 1950/53 will be opened later this year in Busan, South Korea.

The UN authorities wish to obtain British memorabilia from the Korean War, to be placed on permanent display.

Objects, such as, medals, cap badges, regimental and/or divisional flashes, photographs, propaganda leaflets, flags, or any other items that veterans or families of veterans wish to donate would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone sending items will receive a certificate of donation from the UN. Details about the donation would be of great help to the authorities and, any details given about the veterans service in Korea will also be displayed in the museum.

Gifts such as medals,cap badges, or heavy items should be sent to the following address The Military Attache. The Embassy of the Republic of Korea. 60 Buckingham Gate London SW1E 6AJ. Giving full details about the donation. Other items such as photographs, maps, leaflets etc, can be sent to me at the address below.

For more information phone me on or, Brian Hough on 0161 368 5622.

May I thank you for any help that you can give on this very worthwhile project.
