how he came to be in the royal irish fusiliers i don't know as before he signed up/conscrpted he was living in warrington in lancashire i have the 2 medals belonging to him thats how i traced the information on the national archives,all the information seems to contradict itself with different sqs having different information i.e different reg numbers in each sq and different corps.

hope somone can help please.

kindest regards ray bennett
