The words of Winston Churchill, in a radio address to the people of France in October 1940, are included on the headstone at the centre of this mural to the 10th battalion of the Inniskilling Fusiliers (The Derrys), the 109th brigade of the 36th Ulster Division, who fought at the Somme in WWI: “In proud memory of our fallen comrades from the Nelson Drive Flute Band. Glorious on the graves of heroes, kindly upon all those who have suffered for the cause. Thus will shine the dawn. They gave their tomorrow for our today.”
