70th Anniversary of the Korean War – Register your interest

Register your interest

2023 marks 70 years since the signing of the armistice that brought about an end to military operations during the Korean War. 60,000 service personnel from across Britain and the Commonwealth saw action during the Korean War, with 1,100 losing their lives.


The Royal British Legion will be marking this important milestone in an often-forgotten conflict with a special service of Remembrance at Horse Guards Parade on Thursday 27 July from 11am. The event will focus on telling the story of the Korean War through the testimony and memories of the conflict from those who were there, as well as looking to inform and engage the wider audience and attendees about a war which never truly ended.  

Korea 70 is a ticketed event open to British and Commonwealth veterans who served in the Korean War, bereaved family members and their descendants (spouse, partner, or family members). The surrounding expo area will be open to the wider public.
