Des has a wealth of knowledge about the heavy loss of life and injuries sustained by people from Ballymena and the Mid Antrim area during the Great War and the Battle of the Somme. You may have an ancestor who served but did not return and would like to find out how to get information about their Regiment Service record or other information not readily available.

In order to avail of this information you must come along to this excellent talk which will be held in The Braid on Thursday March 25 at 7.15pm.
