Taken by Jolyon Fenwick from the end of George Street trench: jump-off point at Zero Hour of the 9th Battalion The Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers of the 36th Ulster Division. At the signal of a bugle, the 13th Royal Irish Fusiliers, the 11th Royal Irish Rifles and two Royal Inniskilling battalions led the attack to the east of the Ancre. Facing them lay the German fortress of the Schwaben Redoubt (known by the 36th Division as The Parallelogram). Despite advancing further into enemy territory than any other unit that day (as far as Stuff Redoubt), by midnight the Ulsters were back where they started. Out of nearly 10,000 volunteer Ulster soldiers that had gone into battle 5,500 of them had become casualties. The cemetery in which the photograph is taken is Connaught Cemetery, where 1,268 British soldiers are buried. Of the 643 unknown soldiers here, 482 could not even be identified to their unit.
