Ulster and the War - Casualties to Officers and Men, An Extensive List, Further Recipients of Service Honours'
Northern Whig 1917 - Death notice of Captain Rev. J. Dempsey, C.F. whose ship was torpedoed on route to Egypt.
Throughout the war and in the immediate post-war period, people across the island of Ireland collected money for memorials to honour those who had died. Tabloids include the Belfast Telegraph, the Northern Whig and the Belfast News Letter. The clippings range from 1916 to 1922 and cover events such as the erection of monuments and memorials to those who died, memorial services, and rolls of honour listing the names of Ulster service men who went to war.
