No 5 Platoon

This UVF platoon 5, A company, 1st battalion, mural is just across Conway Street from the Noel and Tombo Kinner mural, which is also a platoon 5 mural. The plaque is “in memory of a true soldier, Big Bill Campbell”; for more info on Campbell, see Loyalist Prisoners & Widow’s Welfare (from when the plaque was moved up to the Shankill Road).

The verse on the left is from Siegfried Sassoon’s Suicide In The Trenches. “At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we shall remember them” is from another WWI poem, Laurence Binyon’s For The Fallen.
