IN MEMORY OF THE SOLDIERS AND NURSES OF DUNGANNON
WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES FOR FREEDOM AND HUMANITY
IN THE GREAT WAR 1914 – 1918.
Among the relatives of the fallen, were Mrs. Morrow, mother of Pte. Robert Morrow, V. C., and Mr. James Lynn, Coalisland whose four sons were killed. (In 1917 a plaque was unveiled in Coalisland Parish Church in memorial of the Lynn brothers.)
The memorial, which has been erected at a cost of £1,700, is the work of Mr. F.W. Pomeroy, R.A., London. It consists of a bronze figure, a soldier representing Victory, standing about 8 feet 6 inches, in height, which is mounted on a large pedestal of Stancliffe stone, on which are four bronze panels containing some 200 names of the fallen of Dungannon, almost 100 of those being men of the Royal Inniskillings Fusiliers. The total height of the monument is 18 feet 6 inches (approx 6m), and weights about 30 tons. It was unveiled by the Countess of Ranfurly.
During his speech Brigadier-General Ricardo said, ‘Let the comradeship of the trenches, where no division of creed or class was known, be with them to the end. The memorial should remind them of their duty toex-Service men, especially the scarred and maimed in mind or body, many of whom to-day were unemployed. The men whom they honoured were all volunteers. No compulsion was needed to urge them. They lived and died free men.’
