An amazing poppy display will be assembled at St Mary's Church, Olveston, in memory of those who died in the Korean war.

Younghe Allison has organised the making of 885 crocheted poppies which will be 'planted' behind the war memorial in the shape of blood red angels’ wings.

This will commemorate the 885 British soldiers buried in the United Nations cemetery in Poussin, South Korea, following the Korean War of the 1950s.

Church volunteers will make the display alongside a group of South Korean ladies from Bristol on Saturday, November 10.

The memorial is intended as an act of thanks from the people of South Korea.

Among those who died died in the conflict was 19-year-old William Lansdown from Olveston.

William enlisted in the Glorious Glosters but due to the decimation of the regiment was seconded to the Welch (sic) Regiment.

A single plaque on the war memorial records his name.

William’s older brother, Reg, who lives in Old Down and is now aged 84, will attend the church's Remembrance service alongside Younghe and a group of Koreans.
