PRONI will host an exhibition on the 6th Connaught Rangers across June and July, in conjunction with the 6th Connaught Rangers Research Group.

Founded in 2006 and made up of volunteers with connections to men who fought during the First World War, the group takes its name from the regiment their relatives joined.

While initially concentrating on the 6th Connaught Rangers, reseatch expanded to include those Belfast men belonging to other regiments, including the 7th Leinsters.

The project has used family stories, memorabilia, photographs, newspapers, archives and military resources to uncover the story of how their relatives joined and fought during the war.
