North Wales Korean War veterans branch disbands due to age

The North Wales branch of the British Korean Veterans Association has held its last meeting.

The group of former servicemen has decided to disband because they say their numbers are dropping, and they are all getting too old to carry on as a formal organisation.

The national association is also being wound up.

On Remembrance Sunday this weekend, the North Wales branch members will lay their last poppy wreath before they call it a day.

BBC Wales reporter Chris Dearden went to their last meeting.
