An appeal has gone out to Herefordshire ex-service personnel who served in Korea and Japan back in the 1950s.

If that was you, then the British Korean Veterans Association would like to hear from you.

The association is trying to contact anyone who served in those two countries from 1950-3 and also those servicemen and women who formed part of the Peace Keeping Force from 1953-7.

This includes former members of the Merchant Navy, NAAFI, Red Cross and WRVS.

Any interested veterans should get in touch with Brian Hough, the national recruitment officer for the British Korean Veterans Association at 11 Wardle Brook Walk, Hattersley, Cheshire SK14 3JG.

Brian would be very grateful if any correspondents could enclose a stamped, addressed envelope for any return mail.
