WWII, Belfast Mountain and a White Rock

The connection of a mountain north of Belfast to WWII can still be seen today by the presence of a white stone.

A local postman was hired by the Ministry of Defense in 1941 to paint a large rock on the mountain white.

The stone, at Cave Hill, was used to help guide Allied pilots at airfields in Belfast at the time.

In recent times, a plaque on the mountain to mark the war effort has been defaced.

Activists are urging the public to treat the surrounding mountain with respect.
