Hilliard-Lieutenant R.D.F Hilliard Royal Dublin Fusiliers


Recommended Posts

Hi I was just wondering if anyone would have any information on Second Lieutenant R.F Hillard 8th battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers.I recently bought his musketry book.It has his name both listed as 8th Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers and 7th Battalion Leinster Regiment.There seems to be some us of biro on this book which matches the of ink seen for the leinster regiment writing.Im not sure if this is someone writing in it after or if I'm mistaken about the biro.

Any help would be much appreciated

I would respectfully suggest you change the title thread to HILLIARD - always makes it easier when searching!


Edit:  Here is his commissioning London Gazette https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/29328/page/10161 

The Royal Dublin Fusiliers. The undermentioned to be temporary Second Lieutenants: — Dated 7th October, 1915. Richard Franklin Hilliard".
