Lurgan, County Armagh
DSC03779 Lurgan 3

Lurgan, County Armagh.
Lurgan War Memorial is located in Church Place.
At the dedication Capt. Rev. A. Gibson said the Prayer of Dedication as follows:-
‘To the Glory of God, in the faith of Jesus Christ, and in memory of those of this town of Lurgan and district who fell in the Great War, we dedicated this Memorial in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.’
The memorial, which measures 25 feet 9 inches (8.25m) in total height, is constructed of grey granite with marble interior paving. It stands on a terrace approach by three flights of steps, and takes the form of a hexagonal shaped Temple, the dome of which is supported on columns with a central hexagonal shaft bearing an inscription and names of those who made the supreme sacrifice. The temple is surmounted by a life size winged figure in bronze representing the spirit of Victorious Peace alighting on the earth, her head crowned with bays, her right hand holding aloft a palm branch, while the left is extended in token of blessing.
Each face of the entablature is inscribed with the name of one of the principal battlefronts at which the men of Lurgan served.
Before the unveiling there was a Church Parade of the Catholic Ex-servicemen, numbering 160 men, who attended St. Peter’s Church, where Requiem Mass was celebrated and afterwards, preceded to the place of assembly in Lurgan Park. There they formed up with other ex-servicemen making a total of upwards of 700 men to march to the memorial where the massed choirs, numbering some 250 voices were already in position.
The inscription reads ;-


BELGIUM, FRANCE, PALESTINE,  MESOPOTAMIA, GALLIPOLI,  ITALY.
IN GRATEFUL MEMORY OF THE MEN OF LURGAN AND DISTRICT WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-1918
“THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE”


A copy of an article in a local newspaper after the end of the war.
‘The men and women of Lurgan and district responded nobly to the Call to Arms when in 1914 the Nation’s appeal, “Your King and Country Need You,” was sent out. The quota from our town and district was not exceeded by any other centre either in Great Britain or in Ireland, and even when the first flush of enthusiasm had abated a steady stream of recruits for our regiments flowed in, and every recruit was a volunteer. Nurses were supplied in large numbers, and a very competent committee looked after the Comfort Fund for our troops overseas. Our local Prisoners of War Fund was also well organised and generously supported, and by popular subscription a fully equipped motor ambulance was presented to the Red Cross Society. Lurgan’s war record is a worthy one, and one that every native and resent should be proud of.
Lurgan sent over 3,000 of her sons to the far-flung battle line, to the fleet, and to the air service. A large percentage made the supreme sacrifice, while a great many were wounded; over 100 were made prisoners of war for varying periods, and many others were invalided as a result of war service.

* RIFLEMAN WILLIAM FREDERICK MCFADZEAN, V.C., Y.C.V.
The award of the Victoria Cross was made to Rifleman McFadzean, “For most conspicuous bravery. While in a concentration trench and opening a box of bombs prior to an attack in the early hours of the 1st July 1916, the box slipped down into the trench, which was crowded with men, and two of the safety pins fell out. Rifleman McFadzean, instantly realising the danger to his comrades, with heroic courage threw himself on the top of the bombs. The bombs exploded, blowing him to pieces, but only one other man was injured. He well knew the danger, being himself a bomber; but without a moment’s hesitation he gave his life for his comrades.”
Rifleman McFadzean, who was in his 21st year, was born in Lurgan, the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. William McFadzean. While he was still quite young the family moved to live in the Cregagh area of Belfast. There is a small black marble tablet commemorating his heroism attached to his family home which is now a Doctors’ Surgery.
