The purpose of this booklet is to remember those brave British soldiers who were killed in Dublin during the 1916 Rebellion.
The booklet is dedicated to Lurgan man Second Lieutenant James H Calvert of the 6th Battalion Royal Irish Rifles. James was gunned down by rebels on Monday 24th April 1916 and is buried in Seagoe Cemetery in Portadown.
We hope that you will share in our belief that it is important that the British soldiers named in this booklet should and must be remembered, just as those who died in foreign lands are remembered. The sacrifice made by Britain’s Gallant Sons during this period of time in history ensured that German guns were silenced not just on the Western Front but also the Homefront.
