Today in 1915, William Cosgrove, an Irishman, won the VC as the Allies land at Gallipoli (Painting) and three men from County Londonderry died. The same day two men from Dungannon died near Ypres, James Arthurs was serving with Canadian infantry and Patrick Donnelly with the Royal Dublin Fusiliers. Both are named on the Menin Gate and Dungannon War Memorials. In 1941 Hugh Gamble, Edward Moore and William Graham, Gunners from Bangor and Newtownards died in Greece and are named on the Athens Memorial. A fourth Gunner Thomas Porter from Londonderry also died that same day at El Alamein. In 1943 Flight Sergeant (Pilot) John Tait from Holywood was lost on a night raid, bound for Duisburg just north of Dusseldorf. The aircraft was hit by flak on its outbound leg, and crashed near Doetinchem in Holland.
