Lantern Slide Number 15

These men served during the First World War and we think they are listed on the Castleton Presbyterian Church Roll of Honour.  They were featured in a lantern slide exhibition shown to the Castleton Congregation in December 1918.  Do you recognise them?  Might one of them be a relation?  Maybe you recognise their uniforms, or one of them looks like your dad?  Was he from the York Road area of Belfast?  Let us know in the comments below if you have any clues or hints to who he might be.
