Description

Officials review and inspect the 36th Ulster Division. Unfortunately, there is no information on the time or location. It is likely to be sometime early in 1915 when the 36th (Ulster) Division was completing its programme of training at camps at Clandyboye, Finner, Ballykinler and Newtownards. It is possible that this is the preliminary to the parade through the centre of Belfast on 8 May 1915, when the division embarked for the south of England. This clip is best from about 01:53 to the end.
