I am acting on behalf of the authorities at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery in Busan, South Korea, where more than 800 British servicemen are at rest.
The authorities wish to obtain photographs of those servicemen interred there and also those who died, but have no known grave. These photographs will be attached to their records and also displayed in the cemetery hall of remembrance.
The following are just some of the young men from Scotland who gave their lives in Korea: Sgt Stewart J. Sutherland; L/Cpl Alexander Mclntosh; Pte James Livingstone; Pte Thomas Taylor; Pte John C. L. McLachlan; Pte John W. Patrick; Cpl James R. Cron.
Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and wishes to take part can send the photograph to me or contact me by phone.

The British Korean Veterans’ Association (BKVA) is trying to contact former members of HM Armed Forces who served in Korea/Japan from 1950-53, and also those servicemen and women who served in these two places at a later date with the peacekeeping force, 1953-57.
This appeal includes former members of the Merchant Navy, NAAFI, Red Cross and WRVS.
Any interested veteran should contact me. An SAE would be much appreciated for return correspondence.
