Comments: My birth father was originally from Saskatchewan. HIS father was born in Saskatchewan also in 1918. He was 5'10" tall, with brown reddish curly hair, weighing 160 lbs. He completed his senior matriculation and served with the Canadian Armed Forces in World War ll and in the Korean War. When he left the forces he became a salesman. He was active in his service association and enjoyed bowling. He must have moved his family to Toronto because that is where I was born in 1962. There were a total of 6 kids in the family, 5 boys (the oldest being my birth father) and 1 girl, the youngest. I truly realize this is a long shot, however someone who served in the Korean War may know of my birth father's father and could supply me with a name. Thank you.

Comments: Hi, my Dad...bill Hollingshead served in Korea 1951 and 1952 with PPCLI.
He never told the stories at least not to non coms.
Would anyone have any stories or memories?
I can't even find his service number. He did receive a partial pension for loss of hearing, a direct result of his time in Korea.
Was he in Kapyong? He did mention Mike Goss from Newfoundland and several Australian buddies. Would really like to fill in the blanks. All my male descendants were milirptary and I can find records for them, but not Dad.
He was from Ingersoll Ontario and has a street named after him, his father and brother for their heroism in War.

Thank you and God bless our soldiers..who knows where we would be without them

Comments: I have recently published EXCITEMENT! Shot At And Missed(Tate Publishing), remembrances of my brother, Sgt Ken Lonn, Mortars & Rockets Section Chief; F-2-5, 1st MarDiv. The book takes the reader on an exciting journey from hometown USA, through boot camp and a year (March 1951 - March 1952) in combat in Korea. The book recalls the good times and the not so good times, the laughs and the misery, the struggles and the accomplishments, of those Marines ... from combat veteran's first person view of the realities of war. Hill 812 is a central theme of the fighting. The book is dedicated to the men of F-2-5, as well as all those who served in that brutal war! My mission is to make people aware that the Korean War should never again be dubbed the forgotten war: Marine casualties numbered: 4,262 killed; 26,038 wounded. That's not a police action! That is WAR! Never forget!
The book is about U.S Marines, not Canadiens, but, in reality, it tells the story of all those who were there: the good and the bad times; the misery, the accomplishments, the struggles .... and, yes, the laughs!

What number can I call or exact site I could search to locate his information please.

Comments: Any members of 2RCHA who served in Korea 1951 to 1952 might recall the death of Gunner Takeshi Takeuchi, known as Ray or Ramond. Of Japanese Canadian origin, his family were resident in Montreal when Ray enlisted for service in Korea. I understand that he could have died in Japan following a signals course in the New Zealand Base Camp, Hiro, Japan around October/November 1951. If so he might have been buried in the British Commonwealth section of the military cemetery at Yokohama.

Comments: I am Harold's daughter and was wondering if anyone knew or served with my father in Korea. My father passed away and never really liked to talk about the situation over there. I was looking through some pictures from his time in the army and it brought back many memories of him. But I would like to know a little more about his buddies and his time in Korea. I believe he served in the 1st Battalion PPCLI. He may have been a paratrooper.
