Private Samuel McCullough


The only evidence of this man's military service discovered to date is contained in the Presbyterian Church in Ireland's Roll of Honour, which states that he served as a 'trooper' in the North Irish Horse, lived in Glengormley, County Antrim, and worshipped in the Carnmoney Congregation of the Presbyterian Church.

Samuel McCullough was born on 1 December 1900 in Casement Street, Ballymena, County Antrim, the third of six children of labourer Thomas McCullough and his wife Sarah (née Boyd). At the time of the 1911 Census he was living at Glengormley with his parents and five siblings.

The date of McCullough's enlistment in the North Irish Horse is not known at present; nor is his regimental number. Given his age, however, he probably joined in 1918. He would have trained at the regiment's Antrim reserve camp before being demobilised in 1919.

It is believed that he emigrated to Canada after the war.
