    I recently visited Belfast Cathedral and was privileged to see the Irish Roll of Honour for those who fell in the First World War. Members of the Guernsey Light Infantry fought within the Royal Irish Regiment,including my own Great -Great Uncle, Peter De Carteret (09/01/1887-03/09/16)of Vale, Guernsey,son of Peter David De Carteret.
    The Verger did not know that the names of many Channel Island Soldiers were recorded there and was fascinated to read the names of several other De Carterets who are recorded on the same page(and also relatives of mine but more distant). He was pleased to learn this new information and will be pleased to allow others wishing to view the books in which their ancestor’s names are commemorated.
    Best Wishes, Helen Parry
