The first and last British casualties of WW1 were buried at St Symphorien Military Cemetery near Mons where there are British, Empire and German graves. In 1941 a Nazi spy was arrested in Dublin. In 1943 38(Irish) Brigade including the London Irish Rifles crossed the Sangro river in Italy. On this day in 1940, 1941 and 1944 the remains of three RAF men were brought home for burial in Belfast and Omagh. Today’s veterans are both medics from Draperstown Manse and Castlerock, former students at Campbell College and Queens.
