Boyle & Somerville

Harris Boyle and Wesley Somerville were UDR soldiers and UVF volunteers. They were “killed in action” when the bomb they were planting on the minibus of the Miami Showband went off prematurely. Of the pair, only Somerville’s arm, with its “UVF Portadown” tattoo remained identifiable (WP). The plaque is in Princess Way/Gloucester Avenue, Portadown.
Since 2014, the poster erected each year in Moygashel to honour Somerville has drawn criticism: 2014, 20152016, 2017, and 2018.
