the KOREAN WAR
50th ANNIVERSARY
25 JUNE, 1950 --- 27 JULY, 1953

by Bob Somerton

As John Melady called it in his 1983 book -
" KOREA: Canada's Forgotten War. "
To most other Canadians, it was called, "A United Nation's Police Action."
But to the members of the Canadian Forces, be they, Army, Navy or RCAF, who served there ...

IT WAS A WAR !

A total of approximately 25,000 Canadian Servicemen fought in Korea during the War years 1950 to 1953, while 7000 others remained in that country to help to preserve the peace after the armistice was signed. The total loss of life for Canadian Servicemen from 1950 to 1956 was 516. Of this, 312 were killed in action during the war itself.
