25th June 1950 - The Korean war begins with the invasion of the Republic of Korea (South Korea), by the Army of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea). Eventually leading to the United Nations, led by the United States in support of the South, and the People's Republic of China intervening to assist the North, the war would continue until an armistice was signed (but no peace treaty) on the 27 July 1953, leading up to the formation of the Korean Demilitarised Zone along the 38th parallel.

'Only dial 999... if the matter is urgent; if, for instance, the man in the flat next to yours is murdering his wife or you have seen a heavily masked cat burglar peering round the stack pipe of the local bank building.
'If the matter is less urgent, if you have merely lost little Towser or a lorry has come to rest in your front garden, just call up the local police.'

999 The story
