Safe home for iconic image of Bloody Sunday





It is an iconic images of the Troubles.

The hunched figure of Father - now Bishop - Edward Daly waves a white handkerchief as he attempts to escort marchers carrying the fatally injured Jackie Duddy away from the gunfire during Bloody Sunday.

The 17-year-old became the fourth person to die that day, and the handkerchief - which had been used to staunch his bleeding - was later returned to Jackie's family along with his clothes.

Kept safe by his family for almost 40 years, it was presented to the Museum of Free Derry by his sister Kay on Friday.
