Remembered Today:

Ration Party .. again


Recommended Posts

OK - the Ration Party picture (inc. the Great War dude) is an oft discussed subject.

Sources widely state that the picture (which is pretty much certainly of a group of Royal irish Rifles) was taken at White City (or near it).

Far as I can see, White City is well outside the Divisional Area for any Royal irish Rifles Btn during the relevant period.

HOWEVER there is a WHITEHALL trench near Mary Redan on the Div. boundary between 36th and 29th Divs.

Is there ANY chance that the location was mixed up during the captioning of this picture?

Thoughts? Possibility?

Hi Des,

is this the same picture that is also reported as being of 'B' Coy 12th York & Lancs with Pte Joseph Bailey identified?
