Korean War appeal for information

23 November, 2017

• I AM acting on behalf of the authorities at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery, Busan, South Korea, where over 800 British Service personnel are buried.

The authorities there wish to obtain photographs of those interred there and, also of those who died but have no known grave.

Copies of the photographs will be placed in the records, and will also be displayed on the walls of the cemetery hall of remembrance for all time.

The following names are just a few of the young men from the London area who gave their lives in Korea:

Pte Eric B Barclay;
Lt Robert Williams (RN);
Capt Ronald F Washbrook;
Pte David MJ Tranthem;
Cpl Richard Pegg;
Pte Ronald A J Bennett;
Pte Donald A W Anderson;

Capt Ralph N Parkinson-Cumine (RM);
Lt Robert E Barrett (RN);
Sgt Robert A Donald;
Pte Derek A Fisher;
Rfn Albert E Tice;
Cpl Joseph W Pentony;
Surg/Lt Douglas A Knock (RN).

Any family member, or friend, who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-1953, and wish to take part, can send the photograph to me, Brian Hough. If more details are required you can phone me on 0161 368 5622 or 07467 037742, or email at bhough116@gmail.com with your details.

Thank you for any help that you can give on this.
