The wire is being held by Private Wharton (nearest the shop). At the later inquest into Mr. King’s death 2nd Lieutenant Hardwick said he was threatened by several Protestants after he had grabbed a youth with a white handkerchief across his face who burst through the cordon at London Street, and hurled a bottle towards the Catholic crowd. This disturbance continued into the night requiring the troops to remain at their posts.
