About the memorial: This was a mural painting which was on a large blank wall at the Old Lodge Road end of Leadbetter Street, Oldpark Road, Belfast. Unfortunately, it no longer exists. The following is a description of it written at the unveiling. ‘The subject of the painting is “Comrades of the Great War,” the central feature being a picture, in colours, of a badly wound soldier being rendered first aid by a Navy boy, while shells are bursting all around, and overhead is an enemy aeroplane, which been set in flames by British anti-aircraft guns. Above is a graceful draping, with an ornate arrangement of British flags, and beneath are painted in large distinctive letters to names of the men whose names are on the roll. The confusing address and guesstimate pin position is due to the fact that neither Leadbetter Street or Old Lodge Road appear to exist any more, while Oldpark Road is very long
