Pro­ject for war he­roes

Manchester Evening News - - LETTERS, COMMENTS AND EMAILS -

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

The au­thor­i­ties there wish to ob­tain pho­to­graphs of those ser­vice­men in­terred there, and, also of those who died but have no known grave (200+). Copies of the pho­to­graphs will be placed in the man’s records, and will also be dis­played on the walls of the Ceme­tery Hall of Re­mem­brance.

The fol­low­ing names are just some of the young men from the Greater Manch­ester area who gave their lives in the Korean War 195053: L/Cpl. Clif­ford Broughton, L/ Cpl. Ge­of­frey. B. Swar­brick,

Sgt. Her­bert Clarke, Pte. John. H. Eads­forth, Pte. Ron­ald Shar­man, Mne. Ger­ard Ah­ern (RM),

Any fam­ily, or friend, who lost a loved one in the Korean War and wishes to take part can send the pho­to­graph to me: Brian Hough 116 Fields Farm Road, Hat­ter­s­ley, Hyde SK14 3NP. If more de­tails are re­quired you can phone me on 0161 368 5622,or 07467 037742. You can also email me at [email protected] May I thank you for any help that you can give on this pro­ject.
