The first steps towards the formation of a Birmingham Peace Council were taken this evening. Adopting a theme of ‘Religions Working Together’, some sixty people and Ambassadors for Peace gathered at Dr David and Patricia Earle’s Birmingham home for a presentation about some of the activities of the International and Inter-Religious Federation for World Peace and the International Peace Federation including examples from the United Nations.
A group of veterans travelled for a one week visit to Korea in July 2005. They had been chosen to represent each participating nation in the United Nations forces effort to defend South Korea between 1950 – 53. Sixteen war veterans participated from the UK with the support of the British Korean Veteran’s Association.
Over the weekend of 2-4th February 2007 in Stratford Upon Avon, the veterans, some with their wives, met again to share their own highlights of the trip to a land many had not returned to since the war in the early 1950’s.
