As you will be aware it's the 60th anniversary of the "Truce" between North Korea and the UN forces led by the US,which also included us Brits, Canada,Belgium Australia,New Zealand,France also Holland and a few others.
It was dubbed (wrongly) the forgotten war,but it certainly isn't forgotten as far as I'm concerned, and I'm not going to allow it to be forgotten here.
One of the fiercest battles by the British was called "imjin river" (it sounds like a western) where 400 men of the "Glorious Glosters" held off a force of 10,000 NK's for 3 days.
No sir,the Korean war should NEVER be forgotten.
Lets hope NK is not going to be the catalyst for any future conflicts.

Sam.

It seems that we have forgotten too many wars.

It doesn't take much to see the difference.
