I am acting on behalf of the authorities at the United Nations Memorial Cemetry Busan South Korea, where over 800 British servicemen are buried.

The authorities there wish to obtain photos of those Servicemen intered there, and also those who died but have no known grave. The photos 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 some of the young men from Lancashire who gave their lives in Korea: Kgn John E.Nuttall; Rfn Brian A.Mulligan; L/Cpl James Smith; Cpl Ronald Southworth; Pte Harry Uttley; L/Cpl Dennis Metcalfe; Gnr Gordon Yates; Pte James Lewis; Pte William G. Hillman; Pte Joseph A. Lively; Sub/Lt Richard D. Bradley (RN); 2nd Lt John M. Maycock.

Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and wish to take part can send the photog to me James Grundy at 102 College Croft, Eccles, Manchester, M30 0AN. Or, for details, phone 0161 789 7633 or email You can also phone Brian Hough on 0161 368 5622.
