Hello All,

I know this is a shot in the dark but I am looking for information on my great uncle Frank Forsyth from Dun Laoghaire (Kingstown back then) who served with the Irish Guards during the great war, he survived the war and on his return to Dun Laoghaire helped many a returning veteran. I have little of no information on him any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Gary,

Here's a stater for you... his Medal Index Card (MIC). Looks like he was entitled to the BWM & Victory pair and the Silver War Badge (for wounds etc received).

He's listed in the 1911 census for Dublin as a printer's apprentice aged 19. Parents were William and Kate Forsyth:-

Address is 30 Cross Avenue in the Parish of Monkstown. DED is Kingstown No 3.

It's always worth takng out a subscription to the short subscription (24 hrs) to the Irish Times or Irish newspaper archive which may give you some information.
