Below is a close-up of the information board on Seamus Bradley, a 19 year-old IRA member who was killed during Operation Motorman, the British Army’s retaking of ‘Free Derry’ on July 31st, 1972. Bradley was found to be unarmed and bled to death while in British custody (according to the Pat Finucane Centre). The letter in the display case is addressed to Bradley’s brother, Daniel, from the MoD, and concludes “I regret to inform you … that there is nothing in the circumstances of his death, as detailed in the [Historical Enquiries Team] report, which would make it appropriate for the Government to apologise.”
