A memorial service was held yesterday in Lisburn to mark the 20th anniversary of the Chinook crash on the Mull of Kintyre which killed 29 people on June 2, 1994.

Representatives from several of the families took part in a private ceremony at the headquarters of 38 (Irish) Brigade, alongside senior representatives of the military and MOD civilians at the Mull of Kintyre Memorial Garden.

The service was conducted by Reverend Doctor David Coulter, Deputy Chaplain General, and Father Michael Fava, Senior Chaplain to 38 (Irish) Brigade.

The names of those who died were read out by Lt Colonel Nick Ilic and a wreath was laid by Brigadier Ralph Woodisse, Commander of 38 (Irish) Brigade.

The Chinook was carrying 25 of the UK’s most senior intelligence experts from Aldergrove to a security conference at Inverness when it crashed in thick mist. Leading RUC, Army and MI5 personnel died.

Some of the relatives have said the cause of the crash is still a mystery.
