HARRY CAMPBELL3369
Here in uniform with shorts gives you a clue that Harry Campbell was overseas, the reason we do not know where is because it was war time in the 1940's.
The 5th Division of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers faced the Gustav Line on the Adriatic coast which guarded the approach to Rome in the Garigliano Valley. A silent night attack across the river was planned for the night of 17 Jan 1944, but in spite of the assault was was opposedimpeccable planning ,and very heavy casualties were sustained. The Battalion did not finally achieve its objective until 2 days later. "The Irish deserved special mention in
the history of the Italian campaign for the part they took in the Garigliano battle and for being the first Allied unit to breach the Gustav Line".

Victory in breaching the Gustav Line meant success for the Anzio landings and the Liberation of Rome.
Then in March 1944, Harry Campbell and his comrades of the 2nd Inniskillings embarked for the Anzio landings.
WILLIE CLARKE 3373
Standing straight in his three piece stripped suit with a hand knitted tie and smiling at the camera is Willie Clarke from Randalstown. In his lapel Willie has a Mason badge while Willie must be going to have or has had a cup of tea for you can just make out the top of the teapot. Willie's face is full of character from his smile to the twinkle in his eyes, he looks the sort of man that could rattle out the yarns to you all day long

COGRY PRIMARY SCHOOL 3555
Now in this school photograph taken in 1925 you can see that the pupils are much younger and do not seem to know what is going on except for the two in the centre of the middle row. One little girl sixth (from the left) does not seem at all happy at what is going on, and who can blame them. For they are brought ouside and told to sit still while this man with his tripod and a large box on top keeps throwing this lage black cloth which is attached to the box
over himself which comes down to his waist, then pops out to make adjustments to the box and eventually pops and tell the pupils to sit still
Now sadly at the moment none of their names are known to me but if you know please tell me and a large copy of the photograph will be sent to you.

In the spinning room, there was a process called wet spinning: there was always water and heat. They stood in bare feet in the water all day and frequently suffered from conditions such as ‘foot rot’.
