Description:
thumbnail photo of mural"James Magennis VC. Born 1919, Died 1986". This controversial mural replaced a hardline loyalist image with the face of Catholic man James Magennis who was the only man from Northern Ireland to be awarded the Victoria Cross since partition. He joined the Royal Navy and fought in World War II and the mural was erected to mark the local celebrations of the 60th anniversary of VE day. His role was part of an elite force operating the mini-submarine XE-3 and his acts included attaching limpet mines to the Japanese cruiser, Takao, in the Strait of Jahore, Malaya on July 31st 1945. He made repeated dives as the limpet mine casings became snagged and were only freed through his actions resulting in the destruction of the vessel. As a Catholic honoured by his services to the British Forces, he was not readily accepted back into Northern Ireland and moved to his wife’s hometown of Bradford. Other memorials to him have been erected outside Belfast City Hall and in Bradford. Replaces mural No.602, Album 18.
