    I visited Eglantine Church a few days ago and tooksome pictures of the excellent stained glass window which is dedicated to the Commonwealth Air Crew who are buried in the Church Cemetry.

    The Church was within the general area of Long Kesh Airfield.

    Please take a look atthe pictures in the County Down section of my website at Second World War in Northern Ireland - Home

    If you are in a position to visit the church one of the few remaining airfield buildings can be found in a field nearby.

    Interestingly the church at Eglantine was built by Lord Dunleth's family whose name is Mulholland.

    These stained glass windows are at Eglantine Church near Lisburn.
    They relate to the various Royal Air Forces which served at the nearby Long Kest Airfield.
    Sadly a number of Crews are buried in the Church Cemetery.
    For more please visit Second World War in Northern Ireland
