Notes

The significant input of NI was not forgotten by Winston Churchill who, at the end of the war stated, ‘but for the loyalty of Northern Ireland and its devotion to what has now become the cause of 30 Governments of Nations, we should have been confronted with slavery and death, and the light which now shines so strongly throughout the world would have been quenched.’
