The Korean War

These photographs are part of recent accessions to the Liddell Hart Centre for Military Archives, and were taken by Lt Col Dr Keith Glennie-Smith and Lt Col Anthony Younger, whilst in service during the Korean War. The collections include a number of colour slides from which these photographs have been taken from, and subsequently published in a catalogue, ‘And Life Goes On 1953’, to accompany an exhibition at the Seoul National University Museum in 2007.

Both clearly have a keen eye for photography, and have managed to capture an array of snapshots providing a unique insight into the daily lives of Koreans during the War by documenting local rural life, markets and landscapes, as well as of British military personnel and soldiers of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army.

These are just a selection of the fascinating photographs, and the rest of the digital copies can be viewed in our reading room. For further information on arranging an appointment, please take a look at our website:
