Remembered Today:

Irish Army census of 1922 - Now fully searchable by name.

Just a heads up that MilitaryArchives.ie has today updated its 1922 Irish Army Census database to allow searching by name.

I know this is slightly outside the timescale of the Great War but important for those searching for men who continued to serve on after the conflict in the Free State army.

This time next year, we will have access to the equivalent data for the 1921 England & Wales census.
