Royal Irish Rifles
Newtownards and District War Memorial
The name Hugh Lawson is listed on Newtownards and District War Memorial and in the booklet produced for the Unveiling and Dedication Ceremony held on Saturday 26 May 1934 he is described as a Corporal in the Royal Irish Rifles. The organising committee of the day decided to include the names of ex-servicemen who died up to that date from what they considered to be war related causes, whether as a result of wounds or disease.
Desk searches and public appeals to date have yielded no further information about this casualty.
