Their training included laying railway lines which was done at Dromore.

They departed in June 1915 almost 100 years to the day of the date of the ever popular vintage rally.

Their first task was to lay a railway in Picardy to transport troops and supplies.

The Castle Classic Car Club invite you to come to Brownlow House, Windsor Avenue, Lurgan to their Annual Rally and Autojumble from 10.00am and view the stationary engines and when you hear the whistles blow give a thought for all those young men from all communities of Lurgan district who went away,many never to return.

They appeal to all the young of today to go and see the stationary engines, cars, motorcycles, tractors and lorries. They need new young members. Meet others from other vehicle clubs,societies and associations.

If you haven’t got a pristine classic don’t mind just bring your old banger. Food will be available all day.
