“1st Batt B Coy Vol Brian Robinson killed in action 2nd Sept 1989. For his country and people he took up the gun a volunteer to the end and a true Ulster son robbed of his life’s blood in Sept 89 but the name Brian Robinson will live for all time.” Robinson was killed by an army undercover unit moments after he had shot and killed a Catholic named Patrick McKenna (WP). As the plaque notes, his mother died at the same time – she reportedly had a heart-attack when she heard of his death.
