Omagh memorial

Omagh Memorial

This window was commissioned following a decision by CO Lt Col Paddy Panton, that in addition to commemorating the Omagh tour, it would also be dedicated to Pte Biddle of the ACC who lost his life whilst attached to the 1st Battalion.

Money was raised by a number of members of the Battalion, who ran the Belfast Marathon in1983. Upon the closure of Lisanelly Barracks, the Regiment, along with the family, agreed that the window would go to the ACC Depot in Worthy Down near Winchester where it would be preserved and Pte Biddle would be honoured.
