“UK-South Korea: 60 Years of Military Partnership” exhibition at War Memorial of Korea

To mark an increasingly close relationship during the 60th anniversary year, the British Embassy, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Ministry of National Defence have organised a photo exhibition, entitled “UK-South Korea: 60 Years of Military Partnership”.

The UK was the second largest contributor of troops during the Korean War. In the 60 years since the Korean War broke out, South Korea and the UK have developed a close military relationship with a common global outlook.

The exhibition shows a range of images from the Korean War and from joint efforts to secure peace and security around the world. A distinguished member of the British Royal Family, The Duke of Gloucester, opened the exhibition with South Korea’s Minister for Culture and Minister for National Defense.
