Korean War Memorial, London：A memorial in London, England, dedicated to British soldiers killed in the Korean war between 1950 and 1953.The monument is located in the Victoria embankment garden in central London, between the Thames in the east and the British ministry of defence in the west.
The Korean war memorial in London contains a stone tower facing east and a statue of a British soldier.The British army statue in front of the tower, created by Scottish sculptor Philip Jackson, is about 3.1 meters high and cast in bronze.The statue wears a robe, carries a rifle on his shoulder, and holds a helmet in his hand.To reflect the cold environment of the Korean war battlefield, the costume was arranged for winter.The cornerstone at the feet of the soldiers was written in both Korean and English:
“대한민국의 자유와 민주주의 수호를 위한 영국군 장병들의 희생에 감사드립니다
With gratitude for the sacrifices made by the British Armed Forces in defence of freedom and democracy in the Republic of Korea”
“The Korean War was the first UN action against aggression. The UN forces that fought the North Korean invasion were drawn from 21 countries. Although exhausted and impoverished after the Second World War, Britain responded immediately by providing strong naval, army and air forces and became the second largest contributor after the United States. A distant obligation honourably discharged.
