June 07 – Battle of Messines 1917. RUR on D Day +1

The Battle of Messines in WW1 had the biggest bomb before the atomic bomb. Fusilier John Meeke of the unionist 36th Ulster Division was awarded the Military Medal for rescuing Major Willie Redmond of the nationalist 16th Irish Division. Now a site of the Irish Peace Park. 26 names in today’s Roll of Honour reflect dangers faced by both battalions of Royal Ulster Rifles to D Day+1. Photo – Bayeux War Cemetery.
