    DON ANDERSON: "Three thousand turned up, a large number considering the cemetery was surrounded by troubled areas, and that all bus services to it had been suspended because of the weekend violence. "The prayers asked for very basic things -- such as peace for children to grow up in."

    Background: Interdenominational church services for peace were held throughout Northern Ireland and the neighbouring Irish Republic on Sunday (October 1). One of the biggest services was held at a Belfast cemetery -- and although it was in the middle of several trouble sports, and bus services there had been cancelled because of weekend violence, about three thousand people attended.

    The violence over the weekend, meanwhile, brought a major personal tragedy to a couple living in Marlborough, Southern England. For a soldier who died in a Belfast gun battle on Saturday (September 30) was the second of their three soldier sons to be killed in Northern Ireland. The first died in an ambush September last year (1971). During the weekend the third brother was permanently withdrawn from the province on compassionate grounds.
