In Memory of Our Glorious War Dead

Bitter Fighting for Battle of Ypres
Bitter Fighting for Battle of Ypres
"The Last Flight of Werner Voss"

"The First World War" 1914 -1918


In Paris in 1928, Marshal Foch wrote:-

"The heroic dead of Ireland have every right to the homage of the living; for they proved in some of the heaviest fighting of the World War that the unconquerable spirit of the Irish race ... the spirit that has placed them among the world's greatest soldiers ... still lives, and is stronger than it ever was.

"I had occasion to put to the test the valour of the Irishmen serving in France, and whether they were Irishmen from the North or South, or from one party or another, they did not fail me.

"Some of the hardest fighting in those terrible days that followed the last offensive of the Germans fell to the Irishmen, and some of their special regiments had to endure ordeals that might justly have taxed to breaking point the capacity of the finest troops in the world.

"Never once did the Irish fail me in those terrible days. On the Somme, in 1916, I saw the heroism of the North and South, and arrived on the Scene shortly after the death of that very gallant Irish gentleman, Major William Redmond. I saw Irishmen of the North and South forget their age-long differences and fight side by side, giving their lives freely for the common cause.

"In war there are times when the necessity for yielding up one's life in the most urgent duty of the moment, and there were many such moments in our long drawn out struggle. Those Irish heroes gave their lives freely, and, in honouring them on Sunday, I hope we shall not allow our grief to let us forget our pride in the glorious heroism of those men.

"They have left to those who came after a glorious heritage and an inspiration to duty that will live long after their names are forgotten."
