The Services Club and The Book of Remembrance
The inaugural general meeting of the Queen's University of Belfast Services Club was held on 21 October 1918. At its foundation the Club comprised students and staff of Queen's University and members of its Officers' Training Corps who had served in the armed forces during World War One. After World War Two, Queensmen and women who had served in the armed forces, along with members of the OTC and the Air Squadron, were eligible to join the Services Club.
The Services Club and the University Senate, which is the governing body of the University, felt that a Book of Remembrance containing the names of those who died in conflict in both World Wars should be compiled. The Book was put on display in the Library on 4 December 1952.
