Lantern Slide Number 34

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.

We have identified the man on the right hand side as Peter Kennedy, stoker, HMS Queen Mary. He lived at 26 Ritchie Street, Belfast.  He died on 21 May 1916, leaving his wife Sara and 5 children.  We believe that there are two photos of this man among the slides.  Click here to see the slide.  Would you agree that the man on the left hand side is Peter Kennedy also?
