Chapel of Saint Patrick and the Saints of Ireland

Westminster Cathedral, London



On the walls of the Chapel are enamel badges of sixteen Irish regiments (including the North Irish Horse on the west wall) and the Royal Irish Constabulary, each surrounded by a bronze wreath and above a bronze plaque. Leather-bound Books of Remembrance are kept in green marble cabinet in a niche next to altar. There are books for each Irish regiment and a book listing Irishmen who died fighting in non-Irish regiments.
