My name is Andy Glenfield. Welcome to my website!
It is intended that this website will show locations connected to the Second World War which can be found in Northern Ireland. - Please take the time to look around the website as you will find a number of separate entries regarding places which may be in close proximity.
Above are 'Then and Now' photographs of soldiers from Company L of the 168th Infantry marching back to their quarters following a lecture at Portrush Town Hall.
I hope it will be of use to both tourists and locals alike who have an interest in the involvement of Northern Ireland in the Second World War. Do not be surprised if, when looking around some graves in the Belfast area, you see the wording below-
Remember you are in Northern Ireland where sunshine can be considered something of a bonus. You know it is summer here when the rain is warmer!
The large gun shown above is at Grey Point Fort with the Pillbox at Donaghadee and the Control Tower is at the old Langford Lodge Airfield, County Antrim.
Be aware of your surroundings as the terrain may be difficult. Wear robust walking boots and dont forget your camera!
There will be continual updates regarding locations and general information relating to people and places so please visit this website frequently - And don't forget the "General Information" Section.
This is a personal venture and not a rigid historical record but is designed to give you a taste of what can be found, or perhaps answer a few questions regarding your discovery!
Above is the insignia of 654th Tank Destroyer Battalion which is painted on a wall in the old Coach House at The Argory in County Armagh.
Please visit regularly as this website is constantly being updated.
