Part of the Great Wars Trail

Court Square homes a memorial stone that remembers the 13 young soldiers (one aged just 16) from the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers that died during the night of 14/15 April 1941 when the Luftwaffe bombed the centre of the Belfast City/shipbuilding areas and dropped land mines on Newtownards airfield. Whilst the soldiers were too young for active service overseas they were given the responsibility for defending the airfield.
