October 21. Events on this day. Roll of Honour

Autumn takes hold and the colours at CWGC cemeteries are now changing, as at the WW2 Groesbeek Canadian War Cemetery in the Netherlands. Twenty-three men represent their comrades who fell on this date. Eight men of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers died in 1914 and are named on the Ploegsteert Memorial, Hainaut, Belgium. Five of them were from Derry. The WW2 entries reflect the cost to the Royal Ulster Rifles and to the Royal Artillery from Derry, and Limavady of liberating Italy.
