In Memoriam of P.O.W.
Sgt 9315 John Carswell.
1st Batt Royal Irish Rifles.
 
While fighting in the first World War, John Carswell was shot and then bayoneted. He was left for dead until some
German stretcher-bearers happened upon him and he was then taken prisoner.
 
John’s capture was the start of nearly 3½ years of captivity.  John Carswell was in German hands in Lille in France before
being moved from Valenciennes, a town in northeastern France near the Belgian border, to a reserve hospital in the
German city of Münster, where he is recorded on a list on June 26th, 1915. He was moved to Minden in northeastern Germany
and finally to Soltau, the largest German prisoner of war camp of the first World War in Lower Saxony.
 
John was repatriated to First London General Hospital in Camberwell on October 24th, 1918, a few weeks before the
Armistice. From there he travelled back to Belfast.
John Carswell returned from the horror of a new type of war, a young man still under the age of 30. In the same way as
John had outlived his brothers in his early years of life, John had again survived his 20s, while his “brothers in arms” lost
their fight.

 In
Memoriam
Of
William John McNabney, Royal Engineers. Ulster Div.  
 
 
 
Originally from Ballymena, William John McNabney moved to Belfast where
he married Margaret Walker in 1912 and lived at 52 Ohio Street. He joined
the R.E., Ulster Division in October 1915 and was posted to France where
he took part in the Battle of the Somme. After the war he had a timber yard
at the Crumlin Road end of Cliftonpark Avenue and also built some houses
on the Serpentine Road and in Larne. His final address was 158 Cliftonpark
Avenue. In 1940 his son Thomas John was killed on HMS Foyle bank in Portland harbour during the Battle of Britain.
 
Because of William’s experiences at the Somme he suffered long periods in the UVF Hospital where he died on
9 January 1941 aged 57.  His gravestone in the City Cemetery commemorates that although he didn’t die until 1941,
he died of war wounds sustained at the Battle of the Somme.
