May 26 – Roll of Honour. Dunkirk. Bismarck

The Roll today reflects the battles around Dunkirk in 1940. Among the fallen are men from Coleraine, Dollingstown, Doagh, Enniskillen, and Londonderry serving with the Royal Artillery, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, Seaforth Highlanders, and the Leicestershire Regiment. In 1941 Swordfish Torpedo-bombers from the Ark Royal score hits on the Bismarck enabling British destroyers to finish the job. In 1945 the London Irish are coping with Cossacks in Austria.
