Loughgall War Memorial

Loughgall War Memorial

This   picture was taken at the dedication of the War Memorial and memorial plaque   on 24th June 1999. Ex-serviceman Thomas Walker, who was the driving force   behind the memorial scheme, was Chairman of the Memorial Committee at the   time. Over 100 men from the Loughgall district died during WWI in battles   like the Somme and Messines and many more fell in WWII. The memorial plaque   displays the names of 13 members of the security forces who lost their lives   in the ‘Troubles’ of the late 20th century. They can all now be remembered,   on Remembrance Sunday, each year in a wreath laying ceremony in their own   village.
