1st Battalion, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (British Army)
19/10/1918 (Died of Wounds)
Thomas Darragh was the second youngest son John and Matilda Darragh. Thomas was born about 1896 in Ballymena. The family lived in Broughshane. Tom, like his father, was a labourer. Private Thomas Darragh served for a time with the Royal Irish Rifles, with the Service No. 8920. Private Thomas Darragh later served with the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. There is some confusion with this service number, as most military sources (including his will), give the correct number as 44434. Private Thomas Darragh was serving with the 1st Battalion of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers when he died of wounds at a base hospital near Boulogne on Saturday 19th October 1918.
Terlincthun British Cemetery is situated on the northern outskirts of Boulogne. From Calais follow the A16 to Boulogne, come off at Junction 3 and follow the D96E for Wimereux Sud. Continue on this road for approximately 1 kilometre when the Cemetery will be found on the left hand side of the road. However, it should be noted that the entrance to the cemetery is in St Martin's Road, which is the road on the left immediately after the cemetery.
