Sir Henry Wilson plaque unveiled in Parliament

It will be a short ceremony at Westminster on Wednesday morning, but it marks an event that has had a lasting impact on the history of Northern Ireland.

A hundred years after the IRA murder of Sir Henry Wilson, the first sitting British MP to have been assassinated in almost a century, a plaque in his memory will be unveiled in the House of Commons.
