"McCullagh was not the pioneer of the 'Two Minutes Silence', as Newtownabbey author Bob Armstrong claimed in his publication, Through The Ages To Newtownabbey."

"According to The Belfast Telegraph at the time, Sir Crawford called for a 'Five Minutes Silence' on 11 July 1916, following receiving news of the death of thousands of soldiers from the 36th (Ulster) Division at the Somme."

"However, significantly, he was the first recorded person to publicly call for a period of silence for fallen soldiers."
