Bushmills At War Exhibition - July 17-25


Amanda Moreno, head of collections at the Royal Irish Fusiliers Museum in Armagh, Keith Beattie of Ballymoney Museum and Roamer of the News Letter will speak at the opening of the exhibition on Saturday.

There will be a new section this year on some sailors who were washed ashore in North Antrim during World War I. They are commemorated by two headstones at Billy Parish Church, four at Ballintoy Parish Church, four at Bonamargy Friary, Ballycastle, and one on Rathlin Island.

Robert Thompson has obtained photos of each headstone and some details of what happened to the ships. He's now looking for additional information about the sailors' families.
