From 'The Ulster Drum' book printed by with the vision and foresight of Michael McCullough, photographs by Bobby Magreechan (wee snapper) and words by the late George Douglas Holmes (Geordie).
I have selected a few drums with a nautical theme. Now, not the 'middle class who-ray henry yacht club type vessels' - but ships that have played a part in Ulster of British history throughout the years.
There is a drum from Newtownards in existence with the Titanic painted on it - owned by the Gordon Family - I will try to track a photo of it down and display it soon!!
This is an Orange Lodge drum LOL 159? - known as the Knocknadona Ship
This drum is owned by T. Richardson, Duneight - Ship of the Empire
Owned by Blagh Orange Lodge LOL 256 - Remember Derry, Mountjoy & Phoenix
Mountjoy at the Boom - Owner not known
This drum is owned by W. Dilworth, Portadown - known as Admiral Lord Nelson - it shows HMS Victory
