Leinster Regiment - PoW Other Ranks - 1914



This post will look at men serving with the Leinster Regiment who became prisoners of war on or before Christmas Day 1914. All of these men's names appear on a four-page typed list which was sent to Sir Ernest Goodhart on the 23rd December 1918 by the Leinster Regiment Prisoners of War Fund. The document is housed at the Imperial War Museum under B.O.2 1/258.

For background on this list and others I have published, read my post/index on the 1914 Other Rank PoWs.. With one or teo exceptions, the Leinster Regiment men noted below also have home or next of kin addresses noted against their names.

The full transcription of this list is available for sale as a download or CD for £20. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.

The photograph on this page shows a British PoW in the roll of Shylock at the Dulmen prison camp in 1918.
