The Royal Observer Corps 1925 - 1992
« on: April 16, 2007, 07:39:51 PM »
Did any of the Forum members serve with the Royal Observer Corps ??? The Corps did not have a section in NI until after WWII was over. Early in 1953 it was decided that the area covered by the Corps should be extended to include Northern Ireland and, as a result of this decision, a new group was formed with a headquarters at Belfast.

The Royal Observer Corps Benevolent Fund exists to provide assistance and relief to those former members of the Royal Observer Corps and their dependents who are in need, hardship or distress.

An Antrim Councillor and Ulster Unionist MP, Malcolm William Patrick (1885 - 1946), director of a textiles company, served in the Royal Army Observer Corps during the Great War.
