Today on the 11th of November we remember all those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Today Carrickfergus specifically remembers Rifleman James A Stewart - 8264 - 2nd Battalion Royal Irish Rifles - Born Carrickfergus 1888, Killed in action in Belgium 11th November 1914.

James was the husband of Mary Stewart, together they lived in the Commons Milebush area of Carrickfergus. James was pre-war regular with the 2nd Battalion R.I.R and was serving on the western front almost from the beginning of the war.

He was killed in fighting around Ypres, Belgium. His body was never recovered, he is remembered on the Menin Gate Memorial.

Let us always remember the sacrifice of these brave men even just for a moment #LestWeForget
