The Y.C.V. Tree


A total of 46 trees were planted on the 19th November 1921.  One of these was planted on behalf of the 14th Battalion Royal Irish Rifles (YCV) by Major Mulholland, Sergeant J Shields and Sergeant J Kenning.

This image shows the YCV party at the tree in 1927. It includes J Long who would go on to be the Quartermaster.

The other photograph is a view of the Ulster Tower taken from the ridge above Hamel.
