Lambeg Drum - A selection of Painted Shells 6

Here is another selection of drums - this time memorial shells, dedicated to Ulstermen who served their Country and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

As mentioned before these drums belong to families throughout Ulster -their decision was to mark the death of a family member by having their portrait painted on a Lambeg Drum.

Every drum has a story to tell - I wonder what stories lie behind these paintings!
