Delighted to confirm 'The Men Behind The Glass', the photographic preservation project initiated by The Old Campbellian Society, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund and delivered in partnership with the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), has officially launched.

This is a major heritage project, telling the stories of the OCs and teacher who died in the First World War.

Campbell College's Headmaster Robert Robinson said: "This is about paying respect to our Old Campbellians - the men and boys we lost and telling their stories. It is also about connecting these stories with our lives today and involving as many people as possible in the process."
