A walking tour and talk programme will take place on Saturday, June 20, led by Professor Richard Grayson, covering the personal and shared histories of First World War soldiers from West Belfast.

Following a talk from Richard, an interactive tour will take place around West Belfast led by digital technologies that have plotted the addresses of around 12 men from the Shankill and Falls Road areas who were members of the UVF and went on to serve in the British Army during the war.

The tour is built around original data gathered by Professor Grayson on the origins of local men that served in the UVF, and a new digital resource created in collaboration with Paul Ell and Conor Graham through the Living Legacies 1914-18 engagement centre.

The event is open to all and will include lunch followed by closing remarks at 2.30pm. Spaces are limited and those wishing to take part should email: livinglegacies@qub.ac.uk
