Project for war heroes
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),
Pte. William Logan, Pte. Harold Green, L/Cpl. Edward Hannen, Pte. Edward Lockett, Mne. John. L. Graham (RM), Spr. Arnold Ashcroft, Cpl. Edward Wheeler, Cfn. John. T. Glass, 2nd Lt. William. K. Roberts.
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] gmail.com. May I thank you for any help that you can give on this project. Yours sincerely. Brian Hough, Hattersley
