The Second World War in Northern Ireland

The Second World War in Northern Ireland

Service Personnel from Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland and later the United States all joined those from the rest of the United Kingdom who were stationed in Northern Ireland during the Second World War. (United States Army are shown here in County Fermanagh)

Fortunately all of them left us evidence of their stay and I want to show you where you can find these items via this website.

Neal Roelofsen was from Harris, Iowa and serving with the United States Armed Forces.

On 30th March 1944 he carved his name and home City into a brick in County Armagh.

The Royal Ulster Rifles drew their Regimental badge on a wall in County Down which is shown here and below is the "Coastal Command Gremlin" which was painted on a wall at a County Londonderry Airfield.

All of these relics can still be seen today!

Take a look through this website for lots more information.

Remember you are in Northern Ireland where sunshine can be considered something of a bonus. You know it is summer here when the rain is warmer!

Be aware of your surroundings as the terrain may be difficult. If you are to be on Private Property then ensure you have permission from the Owner. Wear robust walking boots and dont forget your camera!
