I often asked my Mother about her relatives but she didn't say much. Years later I found the story of a young boy who joined the Royal Marines and lost his life in battle in 1918. Also his brother who lived on after 4 years service. These were my grandfather's brothers.

"the pity of war".

Due to the information on this website i was able to find the young man's (my great uncle's ) grave and pay respects. Thank you for the work you have done.

Hi, just to let you know that your Ernest Smith and Col. Beech Death Pennies are modern resin reproductions. You can find numerous copies of them online. They are cast in one piece and then the frame and "bronze" medal are painted the appropriate colours.

Cheers, Gary

Can you confirm any of the men in the 70 battalion boxing winners picture. I'm near positive the man with dark parted hair bottom row second from left is my Granda and boxer from Belfast. Henry (Harry) Elwood. He served in 6th Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and fought in Italy. Was rescued winter of 43 by Italian Partisans after being lost on patrol in mountains. Thanks

Hello, I am convinced that a photograph on your website on Park Street, Coleraine has my late Grandma Doherty, her mother and grandmother in it. I have a very similar photograph of this image on which looks like on the same day/time. However they are stood differently. My grandma is the girl on the far left, holding her dress out - next to (whom I believe to be her mother and grandma). I would love to have a copy of this photograph and frame it for my mum. Please could you advise me where I would be able to buy a copy?
Kindest Regards

Hi Mary
I am looking for Belfast Street Directory for 1940. My Grandmother was living at 43 Agincourt Avenue Belfast she had mother 22nd July 1940 and my Mum was then adopted. I would like to see who was living at that address at this time. I have checked 1939 Directory on your site and it says "Brelsford, J." was living there. I am just wondering if there was any change of name in 1940.
Your site is great and very helpful.

Thank you

My great grandparents were from County Down (g grandfather, Robert Cromie) from Rathfriland). I have a great uncle who fought in the war with CEF forces somehow. I have no official records, only family lore about him being gassed, and newspaper accounts of him being in US Army in 1914 (but we have found no other records), and his obit, which indicates he fought the duration of the war (1914-1919) with CEF, and spent a year with Canadian occupation forces. The big question is why did he possibly go AWOL from US Army to serve in Canada? Might he have somehow joined relatives fr?

Dad was a volunteer from London (a bit clever really) who became Major Waterton in the 8th Belfast. He fought through several campaigns but never really talked much about it. I would like to hear from anybody who met him and hopefully have fond memories of him.

I recently did a 23andme DNA test and it said I was related to a "Herbert Coulter". I googled and I think this may be the same person as my mother's family came from Ireland at some past unknown generations. Very interesting to read. Thank you for sharing.

I do family research for crash site investigators in Europe and a German researcher is investigating the crash of John Davidson, who you have posted here: http://www.lennonwylie.co.uk/ww2_soldiers_database.htm#Davidson
The gentleman you have identified as Davidson, is actually Sgt. Ealden. John Davidson is on the far right, with the photo cut off. Any chance you can re-scan the photo and correct this?
Thank you for the hard work in putting together this website. It has been helpful as we have sought out the families of the crew from 90 Squadron.
Keep up the good work!
