These Good Men Have Give Their Lives

“It is not for glory we defend Ulster but for Freedom we Fight, which these good men have give their lives.” The men in question are “Vltr”s Hugh McVeigh, Andy Craig, and Brian (Barney) O’Raw from the UFF’s East Belfast brigade 3rd (Ballybeen) battalion (McVeigh and Craig are described as being from G company in the plaque on the right).

Colonel McVeigh was killed in the feud with the UVF in April 1975; Andy Craig was shot by the IRA in September of that year; O’Raw was killed by the UVF in 1997.
