June 24, 2021 –
The British Korean Society (BKS) is arranging an event to honour British Veterans of the Korean War on Thursday 24 June 2021.
The event will take place at the National Army Museum in Chelsea, but attendance will be limited and the event will also be streamed live over YouTube and Zoom. This will allow veterans, and any others who might be interested, to watch and to take part from their own homes, or from a number of centres that have agreed to host Veterans for the afternoon.
There will be two sessions of about an hour each, which will open with prepared comments by three or four veterans (live or recorded) of 5-8 minutes each. The veterans online will then be able to offer their own comments, questions and recollections over Zoom.
To help focus discussion, the two sessions will look at two broad themes:
Theme 1: Kit and caboodle
Scope: Good, bad and the ugly of kit, uniforms and hardware, vehicles, personal weapons and artillery. Comparisons to allies’ and enemies’ provision. Rations and/or living off the land and allies’ rations.
Theme 2: Action and inaction
Scope: Recollections of daily life, both at the front and elsewhere. Life as a POW. R&R memories. Medical provision. Shelter. Travel to and from Korea. Communication with home and loved ones.
While subject to change, the outline is at present:
Registration for the event is not yet live, but you can find out more information here.
