Ballymena and Great War

Post by Des » 17 Sep 2005, 20:47

Hi - I have virtually completed a study of Ballymena and Borough in the Great War 1914-1918 with a complete list of men who served/fought/died etc etc.
I have a huge amount of detail available for free .. but I'd like to get some info/pics in return.
Plan is to publish next year.
Des

Feel free to ask - loads of the names mentioned on this board in my research.

I have several Scullions. The one below joined the Royal Irish Rifles, possibly 12th Btn. Central Antrims prior to May 1915. If you have a full name and possible address I will delve deeper.

Wm Scullion, Linenhall Street;

He may be a relation but he was obviously Church of Ireland. Checked your other Scullion post and this guy does not fit the religious criteria.
Tried anyway.
Best wishes

Mrs. Scullion, Linenhall Street, Ballymena has received notification that her son L/cpl. William Scullion, Royal
Irish Rifles, was wounded in action on October 3. He was previously wounded in August last.
Before enlisting he was employed by Mr. H. McNeilly, hairdresser, Church Street and was a member of the CLB
and of the Ballymena Hon. Society of Bellringers. His brother, Sgt. Thomas Scullion is serving at the front with the
Royal Irish Rifles.

Hi Des

Thanks for the kind offer. Longshot, but does anything turn up on the Lilly/Lilley surname from Buckna/Broughshane areas?
