War veterans reunion plea

Have your say

KOREAN war veterans from around South Yorkshire are being invited to a reunion event being organised by a Sheffield veteran of the conflict.

Cyril Withers, who served as a corporal during the war with the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment, is urging anyone interested in attending to come forward, as he needs to know how many people want to attend before he can book a venue for the event.

Mr Withers, chairman of Sheffield Duke of Wellington’s Association, who is also a member of the Korean Veterans’ Association, said: “Although I am from the Dukes, the event is open to anyone who served during the conflict, from any corps of the Army, or who served with the Navy or RAF.”

Anyone interested in attending the event should call Mr Withers on 0114 246 7526.
