Hi,

I am taking on a new project and hope to either launch a new website or maybe a local booklet on the Fallen men of the 15th Battalion (North Belfast volunteers) Royal Irish Rifles. I would like to take this opportunity to appeal to any forum members that may have photographs, dairies or any information in relation to these men if they would be grateful to pass it on to assist me. This will probably take a while and I will update the forum on the progress. I will also be making a local appeal to the newspapers. This will be a major project for me so apologies in advance if I ask some silly questions or be posting for information regularly.

Pm me for my email address.

Regards,

Phil
