Garvagh and Aghadowey War Memorials

     The Great War, because of the death of my Uncle Joe in it, is something I have always had an interest in.  The researching of local War Memorials, therefore has been a passion for many years.  But few War Memorials carry the names of those who returned.  In this both Garvagh and Aghadowey are almost unique as both carry the names of those who came back safely to their families.

     Research can be a time consuming job and in this I have been very fortunate.  In the beginning George and Linda Gilmore offered their help and it has been a pleasure and a great advantage to have their intimate knowledge of both areas.  Both have put in an enormous amount of work and been very helpful.  For this I am very grateful.

     Their families also, have been good with photographs and other details.  I hope that what is written in these pages will bring a little bit of honour to those young men who gave their lives so many years ago.

Aghadowey War Memorial

     The decision to build a War Memorial in Aghadowey must have been one of the first to be erected in Northern Ireland.  By December of 1918 much of the money required had been collected.  At a meeting in the schoolhouse on 17th December 1918 Captain Stronge congratulated the collectors on gathering together over 500.00 willingly given by all creeds and classes.  Mr. J. T. Moon informed the meeting that he had the liberty to state that a free site for the erection of the Memorial had been offered by Mr. George Gilmore, Carnrallagh, and he proposed a vote of thanks to Mr. Gilmore for a very kind and generous offer.  Dr. Morrison seconded the resolution, which was received amongst great applause, and the committee agreed to accept Mr. Gilmore's generous offer.  The site lies in the immediate vicinity of the Aghadowey Presbyterian and Episcopal Churches, and the schoolhouse and was considered a central and most suitable position.  By November 1921 the Memorial has been erected.  The panel on the front carries the names of those who made the supreme sacrifice with the names of those who returned on the other three sides.  It is an impressive obelisk.  The day on which the unveiling was to take place dawned cold and wet and as much as possible of the united service of commemoration was held in Aghadowey Presbyterian Church.  At the end of the service the names of the fallen were read out.

The Last Post was then sounded by R. and S. Platt, Coleraine

     Following a short address by Dr. Morrison in which he said that the unveiling ceremony would be performed by Lieut. Co. R. S. Knox the congregation removed to the small triangle which holds the memorial.  Lieut. Col. Knox was then presented with a pair of silver scissors by Miss Betty Morrison of Meath Park and when he cut the ribbon the Union jack fell away to reveal the list of names on all sides of the memorial.  At some stage after this a gun, which had been used in the war, was placed in front of the memorial.  It remained there for many years but has now disappeared.

Jane Thomson

Jane Thomson, born c1847, was a daughter of James Thomson, merchant, and Jemima McPherson, 'Fairlea' Cullycapple.  Jane was either the eighth or ninth child in a large family of ten children, the eldest, John, was the only boy.

In 1914 the ladies of Aghadowey Presbyterian Church and district met to consider how best they could contribute to the encouragement, comfort and assistance of the soldiers who are at present fighting so heroically at the Front. It was agreed to knit socks, mufflers, etc., prepare bandages and provide chocolate.  Miss Jane Thomson was appointed to take charge of donations of chocolate and subscriptions

The original version of Jane Thomson's poem 'To The Ulster Volunteers' was published in the Coleraine Chronicle of January 29th 1916. It has appeared many times in the newspapers and other publications over the years. Some words have changed as in verse four 'leal', an old Scottish word meaning loyal, has been replaced by 'real'

From 1920 onwards, one by one, the elderly sisters passed on, until Jane, the last surviving member of the family of James and Jemima Thomson passed away on 6th August 1937 and was laid to rest in the family plot in Aghadowey Presbyterian Churchyard.

To The Ulster Volunteers

Ye brave, brave, sons of Ulster, who rallied to the call
Left your friends and peaceful homes and sacrifices your all
To meet and fight and put to flight that grasping cruel foe
Who caused grim desolation, and heartache, pain and woe.

Courage, boys, courage
Be this your daily cry
But don't forget to trust in God
And keep your powder dry.

For many years the Germans had been making deep their plan
Had worshipped militarism, had drilled their every man
While other peaceful nations thought them cultured, honest, true
The Germans forced this awful war like starting bolt from blue
Courage, boys, courage, etc.

Then gallant little Belgium had first to face the foe
Her land was devastated, her precious shrines laid low
What cruel sad atrocities were daily practised there
By the Germans in their bitter hate - Ah! the thought is hard to bear
Courage, boys, courage, etc.

But Britain to the rescue came, France, Russia, Italy too
Supported by our colonies, brave hearted, leal and true
To conquer wrong, uphold the right, and make the weak ones strong
With this as glorious motive, may great power to them belong
Courage, boys, courage, etc.

Our Ulster Volunteers set out, with ready pluck and vim
They joined the Empire's army, to fight for home and King
To show to all the World they were patriots staunch and true
And to uphold the grand old flag of red and white and blue
Courage, boys, courage, etc.

Brave boys from Aghadowey, we've a special word for you
We have known you from your childhood, we have seen each in his pew
Listening to the Word of Life, joining in prayer and praise
And now we pray that God may give 'strength equal to your days'
Courage, boys, courage, etc.

And when the strife has ended, and fearful war is o'er
You'll have a warm glad welcome back to your native shore
You'll tread once more the valleys where the little shamrock grows
And gain new health and vigour 'mid Ulster's calm repose
Courage, boys, courage, etc.

We mourn those noble soldiers who'll return, alas, no more
They've crossed the bar', and landed upon the other shore
But if Christ has been their Captain, they inherit full reward
And their dust will rest in foreign land, as in the old Churchyard
Courage, boys, courage, etc.

We thank our noble army, we thank our navy too
But, more than they, we thank our God, to whom all praise is due
That He kept the heartless Germans, despite their craft and guile
From invading and destroying our own beloved green isle
Courage, boys, courage, etc.
