A Korean War veteran displays his service medal at Westminster Abbey, London, at a service of commemoration marking sixty years since the end of the Korean War. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Thursday July 11, 2013. About 300 veterans marched from Horse Guards Parade in the capital to Westminster Abbey where a Service of Thanksgiving was being held to mark the war, which saw more than 1,000 British servicemen killed and 1,060 taken prisoner. Some 100,000 British troops served on the Korean peninsula as part of a United Nations force after the North Koreans invaded the South in June 1950. An armistice was signed on July 27 1953, but by that point more than 1,000 British servicemen had lost their lives and around 1,060 had been taken prisoner. See PA story DEFENCE Korea.
