The plaque commemorates those from Ipswich who served in the Korean War from 1950 to 1956. 

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 Two.  After the war ended, the presence of Australians in Korea continued with a peacekeeping force until 1957.
