Comments: Looking for Bill Robson who was a patient in an Army Hospital in Osaka Japan in 1951.

He was friends with Jerry Willy, an American
Marine also recovering in the hospital in Osaka.

Robson was transferred to a hospital in Hong Kong and wrote a letter to Jerry Wiily recalling times spent together as patients while in Osaka.

Jerry Willy would like to locate Bill if that is at all possible. He can be reached via my email address listed above or by calling him directly
at 651-748-9043.

Comments: Here in the UK no-one remembers or commemorates the
anniversay of the Korean Police Action.... my father
served with the British Army in Korea as part of the
United Nations force. In this country it is referred
to by veterans as The F orgotten War because the
names of those who died were not on any war memorials
etc. Only very recently - as late as 2011 - did
Korean Veterans take part in the Armistice Day Parade
in London. In recent times Veterans in Scotland,
mostly The Black Watch, hold a remembrance service.
Many US servicemen will probably recall Gloucester
Valley etc., but the UK don't seem to think Korea is
worthy of mention. Very sad. My dad was proud to
serve in Korea as a Tank Commander, as were his army
colleagues in their own roles. My dad was lucky
enough to come back safely, hundreds did not. I, at
least, will remember on his behalf, thereby keeping
his spirit alive. RIP.
