CURRENT EXHIBITION: "Holding the Line" Jan to Dec 2015
As World War One raged through into 1915, the Regular Army was close to decimation!
They were holding the line in anticipation of Kitchener's volunteers and the relief they would bring!
This new exhibition portrays the part played by the Royal Irish Fusiliers in the campaigns of Gallipoli, Salonika & the Western Front. One man's fate would inspire his Commander to write: "under fire he was one of those who did not know what fear was"
