A Forgotten War


On the way to the Falkirk wheel we spotted a sign to a “Korean War Memorial” originally created by British Korean Veterans Association but now managed by West Lothian Council. The shrine is built in a traditional Korean style, it has name boards listing the names of all the 1114 British men who died in the Korean war. The shrine is surrounded by 2 mounds shaped in the sign of Ying and Yang as found on the Korean flag. On these mounds were planted 110 fir trees. I have not seen a war memorial to the Korean War before. “The Forgotten War”
