2011-01-30 Lest We Forget

The Korean War lasted from 1950 to 1953, and in that time more than 200 Scots were killed.

To commemorate the fallen, the Scottish Korean War Memorial was built in 2000. It lies in the Bathgate Hills, between Bathgate and Linlithgow. The memorial takes the form of a Korean Pagoda.

The building is due to be demolished and rebuilt some time in the near future, but meanwhile these crosses remain – simple, respectful memories of fallen friends and family.
