Farmer, who was injured in Korea and sent to a British Commonwealth hospital in Kore, Japan at the time of the armistice, has reflected on the three year conflict. 

He said, "it's often a forgotten war, but today's ceremony is important to remember all those who fought and especially those who lost their lives."
