Korean War pictorial memorial

Chaps and esses,
Saw this in my local rag and thought it worth copying to ARRSe;

Pictorial memorial to Korean War dead sought.

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

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

These photgraphs will be attached to their records and also displayed in the cemetery hall of remembrance.

The following names are just a few of the young men from the Shropshire area who gave their lives in Korea.
Pte Dennis P Pitt, Pte Gordon R Minton, Sgt Gordon S Stone, Pvt Dennis S Nicholls, Pvt George Clarke, 2nd Lt John K A Firth, Gnr Joseph Micklewaite.

Any family who lost a loved one in the Korean War 1950-53 and wish to take part can send the photograph to me at the address below or contact me by phone for further details.
May I thank you in anticipation for any halp you can give me in this matter.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That there's some corner of a foreign field...
