Just come across this thread; there's a very obvious pair that isn't listed - Fred and Arthur Roper, brothers, both 1st Essex, both killed on the same day (early August '15, or thereabouts?). At Gallipoli, too. Both from Clacton, I think. Seem to remember that there was little more than a year between them in age. I'm at work, so don't have reference to my notes, but they should be pretty easy to look up.

I have their old wooden army trunks. Got them from the family.

Bob,

No photos sadly by here's a potted bio of each. Hope it's of use!

Chris

Lieutenant John Gunning Moore Dunlop was part of the 4th Division serving in the 2nd Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers. They had arrived in France on the 22ndAugust and proceeded to Le Cateau by train on the morning of the 24th. At 2.00 a.m. the following day they marched to their positions. On the morning of the 26ththey engaged the Germans at the small village of Fontaine-sur-Tetre and inflicted heavy losses on them before withdrawing. British losses were 7,812 that day. John Dunlop was the elder of two brothers to attend Summer Fields Prep School, near Oxford.

[/size]

Born on November 14th1885, the son of Archibald Dunlop of Holywood, County Down, he came to Summer Fields in 1896 and went on to Charterhouse in 1899. There he showed considerable promise. He was in the choir and was a member of the Rifle Corps. In 1902 he won the Natural Science Prize and was awarded a School Exhibition upon leaving worth £80 pa for the next four years. He went first to Queen's, Belfast and then on to Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he gained a 1stClass in Natural Science, and became a demonstrator involved in chemical research.

After Cambridge he was commissioned into the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, as his younger brother, George, would be after him. John Dunlop was 28 when he died and his body would lie in a cemetery held by the Germans for the next four years until the ground was recaptured and his body reburied in Honnechy British Cemetery near Le Cateau. News of deaths on the front came from a wide variety of sources as is demonstrated here by the information sent from 'The Legation of The United States of America in The Hague';

November 12th, 1914

My dear Colleague, – I beg to transmit to the relatives of Lieutenant Dunlop, of the Dublin Fusiliers, with the expression of my very sincere sympathy, the following information which I have just received through the American Consul General in Berlin ;-

"Second Lieutenant J.G.M. Dunlop, the 2nd Royal Dublin Fusiliers, 10th Infantry Brigade, 4th Division.

This officer I regret to say was killed in action near Clary on the 27th August. He was with two companies of his regiment which were left behind at Le Hautcourt on 26th of August when the British Army retired earlier on that date. The two companies were commanded by Major H Shewen, of the Dublin Fusiliers, and retired later by themselves about midnight on the 26-27th August. On approaching Clary they met the enemy, engaged him and were later surrounded. Second Lieutenant Dunlop met his death while gallantly directing a portion of the firing line. After having been already wounded, he was struck in the head and killed. He was buried in Clary cemetery by Monsieur l'Abbe Beyaent, Rev. Vicar, Clary, Nord, France, along with fifty-five of his comrades. Captain Davy, R.A.M.C., who is now a prisoner of war here, was present at the funeral and himself erected a small wooden cross over 2nd Lieutenant Dunlop's grave."

Faithfully Yours,

His Excellency Sir Alan Johnstone

Captain George Malcolm Dunlop (771) of the 1stBattalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers had lost his older brother in August 1914, fighting with the 2ndBattalion at Le Cateau. Born in 1889 George had come to Summer Fields in January 1900 and gone on to Cheltenham in 1904. In 1907 he attended the R.M.C. and gained a commission into the RDF. At the outbreak of war he was stationed in Madras, India, but was rapidly recalled and arrived back to Plymouth on December 21st 1914. They were then attached to the 86thBrigade, 29thDivision and sent to Egypt (on March 16th1915), which was the holding and training camp for the Gallipoli Campaign. They were only there a short time before being sent to Mudros on the Greek Island of Lemnos, which was to be the stepping off point for the attacks. Most of these soldiers had not seen any action yet. In fact many of them had spent most of the war at sea, travelling from the subcontinent and antipodes to England, then back out to the Mediterranean. The Dubliners were involved in the landings at what was codenamed 'V' Beach where a variety of amphibious transport was used. The Dubliners were sent ashore from HMS Clyde in small open boats but the Turks were ready for them and they suffered murderous fire both in their approach and when they got ashore. It was here that Captain Dunlop died aged 26. He was the battalion's machine gun officer and the Battalion's History, Blue Caps records the events form when they landed;

They were met by a perfect tornado of fire. The machine-gun detachment worked desperately to get their guns ashore but they were nearly all killed or wounded; both the officers, Captain Dunlop and Lieutenant Corbet, were killed.

His body is buried in 'V' Beach Cemetery, but it is not known which grave his is so he is commemorated on a special memorial there. Thus John Dunlop had died in France in his first action and George had died in Turkey in his first.

The two Dunlop brothers were nephews of the Gunnings of Cookstown(Co.Tyrone) who owned a linen mill in the town

Major Gerard Byrom Corrie IRVINE, Indian Expeditionary Force is on the war memorial here in Enniskillen.

I am a volunteer in Inniskilling Regimental Museum and I have started researching all the names on the war memorial. It would be of great assistance if anyone could provide any information about this officer and why his name should be on our memorial.

Clive Johnston

Interesting; I will look into this.

My apologies but it would appear I was mistaken in the above posting. I put too much credence into an old family story and jumped too early to a conclusion that appeared to fit.

I'm still looking for the right Woodford "brothers"....
