UDR 2 - 25th Anniversary

On Saturday 23rd February 2013 Ulster Defenders of the Realm LOL 710
will hold their annual commemorative parade / service for Pte. James
Cummings and Pte. Freddie Starret. Both soldiers were tragically
murdered by a bomb detonated by command wire which was triggered
by cowards. These two young men were killed while on active duty with
the Ulster Defence Regiment, and their old comrades continue to
remember and honour them through this parade. Both lads were also
Orangemen which explains why brethren and sisters come as far as
Scotland to pay their respects on the day. Ulster Defenders of the Realm
are the organisers of the parade with the families of both lads kept
informed of every detail.

This year, being the 25th anniversary of their deaths ,a special
commemorative tie, has been produced to mark the occasion which will
sell at £10. It can be bought from any of the brethren from LOL 710
before the 23rd and will also be available on the day. The parade will
also see an increase in bands attending, which are strictly by invitation
only. Following the parade an indoor concert will commence at
Ballymacarrett Orange Hall where bands on parade will display their musical talents. The parade as always is open to all brethren & sisters. All brethren are asked to assemble at the top of Templemore Avenue at 9.45am sharp.
