Down County Museum and Queen’s University, Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis, have launched a digital comic book.

The comic book is about how the lives of three men were interlinked with the story of Ballykinlar Camp in the first half of the 20th century – James Hughes, a Belfast-born soldier of the First World War; Peter Byrne, a Dublin-born internee of the Irish War of Independence; and William Wolfe, a Chicago-born GI on his way to the Normandy landings in the Second World War.

The book has been brilliantly designed and illustrated by the CDDA team, who have run a highly successful Ballykinlar Camp public engagement programme over 2 years.

The project was completed for Newry, Mourne and Down District Council with the financial support of the Special European Union Programmes Body through its PEACE IV Programme.
