Belfast WW1, May 1915 soldiers of the 36th Ulster Division enroute to war parade along Chichester Street.




The intersecting street would be Arthur Street, and the parade is about to pass in front of Belfast City Hall.

Wow, I canít believe that my pics from nearly 10 years ago have been resurrected.  I thought that Photobucket had zapped them all as they went for subscription a few years ago. Glad to see some of the old names, wonder how Homebird is?

Remember the bravery and deeds of the Men & Women of the USC, RUC, RUC Reserve, the UDR, PSNI, but most of all the British Army.

The Belfast Roof in this pic has appeared in numerous books on "roof construction" .a work of art and a very solid construction. It was mainly used to span large wide buildings but very few and far between.
