Video: Ulster heroes from The Battles of Coronel and Falkland Islands honoured in restored film


This dramatic reconstruction of two decisive naval battles from the Great War is one of the finest films of the British silent era. On November 1, 1914 some 91 Irishmen - of whom 26 were Ulstermen - were among the 1,654 lives lost from HMS Good Hope and HMS Monmouth in the Battle of Coronel, off the coast of Chile. The loss of these men will be marked within the introduction to QFT's screening of The Battles Of Coronel And Falkland Islands on November 11 and 16. Credit: BFI
