April 29 – Roll of Honour

Among the fatalities of WW1 is a young Inniskillings officer from Londonderry who was killed in the “Dublin Rebellion”. In WW2 an RAF sergeant from Dunmurry was lost performing mine-laying duties at the Kiel Canal. The father of the featured WW2 veteran from Portadown had won the DCM in WW1.
