Comments: Hi
My father Harry Clayton Driffill from Goole / Hull - East Yorkshire sadly passed away last year after never speaking about his time as a Royal Engineers in Korea.
He wrote about his life up to marry mum in 1957 so we'd hoped we would be able to fill the gaps then but no. Nothing!
He join the RE as part of National Service in Aug 1952
he went to Aldershot then onto No 9 Training Reg RE in Farnborough. He then qualified as a Deputy Clerk of Works Construction at the RE Depot in Chatham as a Cpl before volunteering for Korea.
The next we know is when his unit went to Hong Kong after the war. But there are no details of his unit etc
so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks

I'm on the hunt for any info regarding my Grandad who served in the Korean War. His name was Henry, or Harry, Cook. At the time of retirement he was a Sergeant Major, although not sure if he was this rank during the war.

I know that he rotated in Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia and Japan. He served in REME and was seconded for a time, but could have been for his entire time in the war, with the Australian Army.

If anyone has any info I'd be very grateful,

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!

Yes, this a book about U.S Marines, but it really is the story of all the brave young. men who fought in the Korean War; the story of their good and bad times, the misery, the struggles, the accomplishments and .... yes ... the reason that they will never be forgotten!

He served in Korea during the war, but other than that we know little else about him. During his service he lost an eye and was very traumatized by it.
