About the memorial: Memorial is situated in the village Square. It is constructed from Sicilian marble, the figure being a representation of a soldier in full battle order, surmounted on a granite base. 174 men and 10 women from Moy and district responded to the call, of those 36 paid the supreme sacrifice. The unveiling ceremony was to have been performed by Viscountess Charlemont but owing to the death of her father she was prevented from doing so. The duty was carried out by the Hon. Mrs. Philip Nelson Ward, wife of Vice-Admiral Ward, and sister of Viscount Charlemont, V.L., J.P. After the memorial had been unveiled Major Williamson read the names of the fallen, and as he called out each name a comrade replied “killed in action, Sir;” or “Died of wounds, Sir” as the case might be. Major General Cameron said that the volunteers, men and women, had been inspired to answer the call to arms by that instinct which ran so strongly amongst them in Ulster that they would see that Might would not triumph over Right. In his address he paid a high tribute to the 10th Irish Division, and to the 36th Ulster Division. He had seen a good deal of the latter Division in the early part of its career, and saw their high degree of gallantry in the field. They were men of splendid military discipline and civic behaviour. A very large number of those gallant men fell in action on that famous 1st. July 1916, when the Ulster Division won imperishable fame. The pressure on the French front had become almost unbearable. The Germans had made the most unrelenting attacks and the Ulster Division were given the difficult task of relieving the pressure on their ally. They achieved success in capturing the German position, and were the one Division that succeeded in gaining ground, and reaching the objective allotted, to them. They suffered terrible loss, and the memories of those brave men who fell were being honoured there that day after WW2 another list of causalities from WW2 were added, this included 21 men and 1 woman
