International Militaria Collectors Club

Hi,

I am a member of the IMCC. I just got a flyer in the post today from the IMCC. It states that there is a fair going to be held on Saturday 12th May 2012 at the North Star Hotel, Dublin.

Admission is €4. Members are free.

Altogether I think there is approximately 400 members of the IMCC which usually means a good turn out.

TIPPERARY CASUALTIES OF THE KOREAN WAR-AUTHOR JAMES DURNEY

IUNVA HOUSE RAILWAY STATION CLONMEL AT 8PM TUESDAY 15TH MAY

The Far Side of the World by James Durney

On June 25 1950 the North Korean People’s Army launched a surprise attack across the border between communist North Korea and the Republic of South Korea. Within days American ground troops were committed to Korea and with them many Irishmen, recent emigrants to the US. Several weeks later more Irishmen arrived as Britain committed a brigade to the UN cause.
 
Hundreds of Irishmen from the Royal Ulster Rifles and the Irish Hussars arrived in Pusan preparing for the re-unification of Korea by force of arms. This UN mandate was interrupted by the intervention of China and the Korean War dragged on for another three years resulting in millions of casualties. This is the first book to access the involvement of Irish soldiers in the armed forces of America, Britain and Australia or as soldiers of Christ.
 
This is the story of the Irish in Korea, told in many author interviews, personal narratives, newspaper accounts, and letters. Includes thirty-two photos, map and list of all soldiers and civilians from Ireland killed in the conflict

This book and others by James Durney will be available at a Special Reduced Rate for all who attend this Lecture.

James Durney is an Irish author and local historian based in Naas, Co.Kildare, Ireland. He has written a number of books on both Irish and international history. His latest work “Vietnam: The Irish Experience” covered Irish citizens involvement in that war. James has worked with Irish language national broadcaster, TG4 on the development of their documentary series 'Mobs Mheiriceá'. He was also consultant and chief researcher on 'War Stories' from Irish national broadcaster RTE.

If the weather holds I'll be popping over to Salute tomorrow. Missed it last year when the venue changed, but it's back in Swords this year (National Show Centre).
