A burial ceremony for the remains of Mr. Nicolaas Frans Wessels was held on May 12, 2016 at the United Nations Memorial Cemetery in Busan. The Ashes of Mr. Nicolaas Frans Wessels came to Korea carried by his son Petrus and daughter-in-law on May 9 through Incheon International Airport.
The late Mr. Nicolaas Frans Wessels joined B unit of the Regiment of van Heutsz(Dutch battalion) during the Korean War.
He had used to express his hope to be laid to rest beside his comrades after he left Korea. His will became possible to be fulfilled due to the changed policy of the UNMCK which now allows the burial of those who died after the War.
Mr. Nicolaas Frans Wessels passed away on April 7, 2015 at the age of 84 years.
