Beyond the Battlefield attend Memorial at Loanends Orange Hall Antrim. We felt very honored to attend even though it was a terrible reminder of the events of the past.
On 7 March 2009, two off-duty British soldiers of 38 Engineer Regiment were shot dead outside Massereene Barracks in Antrim town, Northern Ireland. Two other soldiers and two civilian delivery men were also shot and wounded during the attack.
Those killed were Sappers Mark Quinsey from Birmingham and Patrick Azimkar from London. The other two soldiers and two deliverymen were wounded. The soldiers were wearing desert fatigues and were to be deployed to Afghanistan the next day.
Thanks to Derek Wilson and all the team, members and attendees for a great day afterwards and for all the hospitality.
