Korean War MemorialPrint Page
The War Memorial commemorates those who served in the Korean War from 1950 to 1956. The Memorial also contains a plaque commemorating the 43 Australians who were classified as missing in action and remain on the battlefields of North Korea.
The Korean War (25 June 1950 – 27 July 1953) was a war between the Republic of Korea (South Korea), supported by the United Nations, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), at one time supported by the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. It was primarily the result of the political division of Korea by an agreement of the victorious Allies at the conclusion of the Pacific War at the end of World War II. After the war ended, the presence of Australians in Korea continued with a peacekeeping force until 1957.
Of the 340 Australian servicemen killed during the Korean War, 43 were classified missing in action.
