The Imperial Province

2014-05-05 OverTheTop+
The lettering has faded from this Ballyclare mural of soldier from the 36th (Ulster) Division going over the top. The scroll in the bottom right contained the familiar list of eight Somme battles: Somme, Ypres, Arras, Thiepval, St. Quentin, Grandcourt, Messines, Fricourt (featured also in Tamery Pass | At The Going Down Of The Sun and a part of the YCV flag, as in Where Youth And Laughter Go). The main panel read “Let us not forget those of our comrades who have made the supreme sacrifice. Ulster mourns them but is proud of the glory and honour they have won for the imperial province.”
