May 10 – Roll of Honour

A 19-year-old Irish Fusilier from Lisburn was wounded twice by Christmas 1914. He died this day in 1915 at Hooge. Today is the anniversary of five RAF aircrew from NI whose remains rest in Dunboe, Oxfordshire, France, and Egypt. Gen. Dwight D Eisenhower comments on N Ireland’s role – “From here we started the long, hard march to Allied victory”
