Default Rare photos of 14th Battalion Roysl Irish Rifles

Apologies to anyone from outside the UK who cannot access the BBC iPlayer , but here is a fantastic programme about a collection of recently unearthed photographs in the Ulster Museum which belonged to a gentleman called George Hackney who served in the 14 th (Young Citizens) Battalion of the Royal a Irish a Rifles in WW1. There are lots of absolutely unique battlefield photographs shown, and lots of good insignia shots for those interested.
I would imagine that these will become much more widely known over the next while. I believe that they will be part of a forthcoming exhibition at the museum. I wouldn't be surprised if they get published in book form.

I have tried pasting the link unsuccessfully, but if you search the title, The man who shot the Great War, hopefully it will bring it up.
