Ulster Defence Regiment

[ Conspicuous Gallantry Cross  ]

In October 2006 Her Majesty The Queen conferred the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross (CGC)for Gallantry to the Royal Irish and Ulster Defence Regiments, the total number of soldiers from both regiments that have been murdered during the Troubles are unknown. Some of them murdered while off duty with a further number after leaving the army.


This page is dedicated to those who paid the ultimate price in the name of their country during the bloodiest thirty-odd years of domestic British history.

The UDR Soldier As poppy petal gently fall Remember us who gave our all Not in the mud of foreign lands Nor buried in the desert sands. In Ulster field and farm and town, Fermanagh's lanes and drumlin'd Down We died that violent death should cease And Ulstermen might live in peace. We did not serve because we hate Nor bitterness our hearts dictate. But we were they who must aspire To quench the flame of terror's fire. Grieve not for us, but this we ask, Let others yet take up the task. John Potter
