British Korean War Veteran to be Named Honorary Resident in Nam-gu

The Nam-gu District office in Busan has announced that it will name a British soldier who served in the Korean War as an honorary resident at a ceremony this week.

James Grundy, who was instrumental in setting up the UN Cemetery, will receive a plaque from the district at a ceremony this Wednesday.

A special lecture from Grundy about life in the Korean War will follow, set to begin at 3 p.m.

The 87-year-old veteran served in the Korean War from February 1952. He was in a recovery unit which helped recover 90 soldiers bodies from UN Forces.

He has returned every year to the cemetery since 1988 to take care of the graves of the soldiers he recovered.
