Gun Running by Ulster Volunteer Force
Rifles and ammunition are landed at Donaghadee, County Down, by the Ulster Volunteer Force and loaded onto a charabanc usually used in the summer for tourists to the area. The report in The Illustrated London News suggested that on the night of Friday 24 April and early hours of the next day 35, 000 rifles and 1, 000, 000 rounds of ammunition were landed from a steamer disguised as the 'Mountjoy', said to have been the 'Fanny'. The weapons were taken ashore at Larne, Bangor and Donaghadee and then distributed throughout Ulster. Date: April 1914
