The service at Gloucester Cathedral Sunday 25th April 2021. By Paul Nicholls Western Daily Press
Three Korean War veterans were among the dignitaries at a service at Gloucester Cathedral yesterday to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Imjin River.
In Korea in April 1951, the 1st Battalion of the Gloucestershire Regiment fought a desperate action against overwhelming numbers of Chinese attackers until it was overrun and the survivors were marched into prison camps. It remains the bloodiest single battle that British soldiers have fought in since the end of World War II.
The replicas of the Carne Cross have been carved by Gloucester Cathedral stonemason Wieslaw Szod, using sandstone from the Forest of Dean.
Three replicas of a cross carved by a prisoner in the Korean War have been blessed by the Bishop of Gloucester.
