  1. the korea war ended on the 27/7/1953

    to mark the 60th annisversary from today there are parades,exbitions etc in all areas up to and including the 27th

    britain still had conscription at this time and many who fought were conscripts

    the battle of the imjin river was one,if not the bloodist, battles fought.we should remember all the fallen

  2. Surely, "the ceasefire began" rather than "the war ended"?

  3. My thoughts too.
     
  4. for some the "war ended" and for others the "cease fire" began..depends on your view i suppose
     
  5. For the Koreans, the war is still very much on so I'd tend to go with that view. It's their war, after all.

    Or you could just be historically accurate, and accept that the war is still (technically) on-going.

  9. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1845135334/?tag=armrumser-21 recently read this. Beforehand id never really given much thought to the war. I didn't really understand what those men went through. But now I really think their story should play a greater part in the country s' collective military conscience. Some hard hard men in that brigade. Total respect to all involved.
