The Roll of Honour website has gathered data about British casualties in war from many sources and compiled it all in databases where you can search for specific soldiers using a number of arguments. A truly impressive job that deserves attention. This link leads to their database for the fallen in the Korea War. In the following quote the authors describe their sources: "This database contains details of British casualties, either dead or wounded, prisoners of war and VC winners. The details are drawn from the war graves in Korea (see Korean War Graves) and lists published by The Times newspaper during the war (this is accessible on-line through most UK libraries although you may need a reader´s ticket). Other details drawn from war memorials and local newspapers and other written sources have been included as they have been found. Also from Korea 1950-1953 Prisoners of War The British Army by Peter Gaston."
