East Belfast Volunteers

This mural and its accompanying plaques, at the mouth of Canada Street, commemorate WWI and celebrate the nine Victoria Crosses won by members of the 36th (Ulster) Division “For valour”: Cather, McFadzean, Bell, Quigg, Emerson, De Wind, Seaman, Knox, and Harvey; the final plaque is McCrae’s In Flanders’ Fields. The main mural features insignia of more than thirty units of types ranging from machine gunners to vets.
