Roll of Honour Death Notice (with incorrect date and age) for Pte Hamilton Northern Standard June 1918

Many of the details discovered about Private Robert Hamilton from Ballinode were taken from the archives of the Northern Standard, the main weekly newspaper for County Monaghan. So it was very appropriate to receive coverage in this week’s edition (still on sale) for my talk a week ago on this member of the Royal Irish Fusiliers (9th Battalion), who was killed in action in Flanders in April 1918.

My walk around Emy Lough, Emyvale, last weekend provided a great opportunity to take some new pictures of this wonderful natural asset in North Monaghan. I have put them together in a short video using the Sony Xperia programme. I hope you like the views, showing the lake on a bright, sunny afternoon. I also hope that the table quiz in the Red Boys pub was successful in raising funds for the upkeep and maintenance of the walkway by the Donagh Development Association.

It’s one of the most beautiful parts of North Monaghan: Emy Lough. In recent years a hard-working committee from Donagh Development Association has developed a walkway around two-thirds of the lake.

Using the nearby public roads a loop walk has been created, which is proving very popular as a place for exercise and relaxation. A number of seats have been provided along the way where you can stop for a breather and admire the view across the lake. Part of the lake is used by the local angling club and permits must be obtained from them for fishing.

It is a very peaceful spot and the 4km looped walk can be completed at a leisurely pace within 45 minutes or less. Keep an eye out for ducks and swans on the lake. Please remember to keep the path and the lake area free from litter: take your rubbish home with you.

When you come to the end of the trail (or entrance if you prefer to start your ramble on the walkway rather than the public road) you will find a red box for donations. This is cleared regularly and has been provided by Oliver McCarron Engineering from Knockronaghan.

A WORLD WAR I SOLDIER FROM BALLINODE

Private Robert Hamilton from Kilmore East in Ballinode is one of the thousands of Irishmen killed in World War I whose stories were forgotten for nearly 100 years. Now to coincide with the centenary of the start of the Great War in August 1914, his story was recalled in a talk by local journalist Michael Fisher at St Dympna’s hall in Ballinode on Friday evening.

According to his obituary in the Northern Standard in May 1918, Private Hamilton was a member of the Ulster Volunteer Force in County Monaghan. He had signed the Ulster Covenant in Ballinode in September 1912. The UVF ranks joined the British Army to fight in World War I and became part of the 36th (Ulster) Division, headed by a Cavan man, Major General Oliver Nugent.

Robert Hamilton enlisted in Monaghan in the 9th  Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers (the ‘Faugh-a-Ballaghs’) when a recruitment party came to town in February 1915. The Johnston and Madden Memorial Orange Hall on North Road was one of the places used by the British Army, along with the Town Hall. The recruits were sent to a barracks in Belfast and then to England for training. In October 1915 the regiment was on the move from Southampton across the English Channel to France.

Robert fought at the Battle of the Somme in July 1916 but was invalided with a fever at some stage and appears to have been sent back to England to recuperate. He left Ballinode on Easter Saturday at the end of March 1918 and returned to his unit on the western front. Three weeks later he was killed in the fighting during a German offensive in the Ypres Salient at Kemmel Hill in Belgium. He was 26, not 24 as some records show. His body was never identified, so he has no grave, but his name is included in the vast Tyne Cot memorial near Ypres.

There is also a plaque in his memory at St Dympna’s Church in Ballinode, which provided the springboard for the talk. It would not have been possible without the interest shown by Marie McKenna and her research along with two distant Hamilton relations, Ruby Heasty and Heather Stirratt. Ruby still has the three war medals awarded to Private Hamilton.

A week ago when I resumed blogging I expressed the hope that it would enable me to achieve a total of over 50,000 views for my pages. That target has now been passed, thanks to your support. Please keep on reading. I have a few more articles to add on Private Robert Hamilton from Ballinode, County Monaghan, and these will appear in the next few days.

The beautiful view that I use as the background for FisherBelfast’s Blog (see above) is of a lake: in this case Emy Lough outside Emyvale in County Monaghan. I went there to do the walk around the Lough at the weekend and took some new photographs, which I will share with you later on these pages. A beautiful spot and congratulations to the team of volunteers from Donagh Development Association which ensures the walkway is kept in tidy and good condition. The next big event there will be the Christmas Day swim for a local charity. Please  note the newly installed donation box is cleared regularly.

Private Robert Hamilton is remembered in two plaques in County Monaghan. The first, as mentioned earlier, is in St Dympna’s Church of Ireland church in Ballinode. The stone mason for the memorial was Lendrum of Clones, whose name appears in the bottom left. He seems to have made several other such memorials in the area.

It is also interesting that Private Hamilton is listed as one of the local Orange Order members from Monaghan who gave their lives in the Great War. There is a plaque in a former hall on which his name appears along with six of his contemporaries who were killed. Two of them were also in the 9th Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers. They are Private Fredrick J. Welsh (17933), died March 1918) and L/Cpl Andrew Moorhead (16121) who was apparently killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme.

The names of nine soldiers who survived are included, making a total of fifteen, two names having been added below the original stone. A picture of this memorial also appears in Kevin Cullen’s County Monaghan Book of Honour 1914-18. In the church in Ballinode there are two other memorials to soldiers who served in Canadian regiments and who died in 1916 and 1917.

 The first, very similar to the one above and also crafted by Lendrum of Clones, is to the memory of Vivian Hartley Church Abbott of British Colombia, of the 29th Canadian Infantry. He was killed at the Battle of Lens, August 22nd 1917. His father was the Archdeacon of Clogher and was the Rector in Ballinode for many years.  A separate plaque commemorates his service to the parish.

The second memorial is a bronze plaque dedicated to Francis Wright Hazlett, who also served in the Canadian Infantry. His father Mathew Hazlett was from Killygavna and he joined up in Vancouver. He was killed in action, also in France, on June 12th  1916.

Searching through extracts from the Northern Standard in the library in Monaghan I picked up one of the death notices books for the period and quite by chance the first page I came to contained a report about the unveiling of this plaque. In the newspaper files we also found the obituary of Private Hamilton and two in memoriam notices which had been placed by his mother Mary on the first and the fifth anniversaries of his death.

Private Robert Hamilton survived unscathed during the five-months long Battle of the Somme in 1916. But some time afterwards, possibly in 1917, he was ‘stricken with fever’ and was brought back to Britain as an invalid. I notice that in the case of another Fusilier, he was taken to Leeds Infirmary for treatment, but it’s not yet clear where Hamilton would have been sent. He appears to have been allowed to return to Monaghan at some stage and might have been treated in the old Infirmary there.

His obituary in the Northern Standard in May 1918 gives us some more clues as to how he met his end. It tells us he went out again from Ballinode, never to return, on Easter Saturday (March 30th 1918). Three weeks later on April 19th he was listed as being killed in action. He was 26, not 24 as the plaque in Ballinode states. This has become clear as a result of finding a copy of his birth and baptismal record, thanks to Mrs Armstrong in Clabby.

Looking at the regimental war diary of the 9th Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers and the 2nd North Irish Horse which was amalgamated with them it is apparent that this was the time of the second German offensive on the western front, which had begun a month or so earlier. The Germans were determined to recapture much of the ground that had been held by the Allies and to push the British Army back to the French Coast.

On April 18th the diary records the action at Kemmel Hill, not far from Ypres, where the Germans attempted to recapture this high ground from which the occupiers could observe the surrounding countryside for miles around.
