September 25 – Service on this day. Roll of Honour

Parachute Regiment colours at Osterbeek 75th anniversary remembrance service in 2004. On this day in 1915 “The Witness” a Presbyterian Church newsmagazine reports on the UVF at Clandeboye Camp, Newcastle, and Ballykinlar. In 1915 the London Irish Rifles go over the top as the Battle of Loos begins. Today we record the record of service of 52 men from NI in both wars and all services. They include a Banbridge man who was one of the first to enlist with the North Irish Horse who were in France from 20 August 1914, also an Archdale from Fermanagh, and three Gunners from Newtownards who fell at Tobruk.
