Wales decided that those who died on the Leinster had been forgotten for too long. Calling themselves The Friends of the Leinster, they planned to mark the 85th anniversary of the sinking in 2003 with remembrance services on both sides of the Irish Sea. It was decided that commemorations would be held at Dun Laoghaire on 10 October and at Holyhead on 12 October.
