Seeking information about the war service of William Mulgrue, born 1879 in India, where his father George Mulgrue, an Irishman from Sligo, was a serving soldier in either the 6th of Foot or the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers. The family returned to England around 1880 and settled in Birmingham.

William Mulgrue had 3 brothers about which I have the following information:

Edwin Cecil Mulgrue b 1867 India - Major with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and in 1919 Lt-Col in the Royal Flying corps

James Arthur Mulgrue b 1877 India - Captain in India Army Reserve

Edward Mulgrue b 1884 Birmingham - Royal Engineers Transport no 904 and Sapper in Royal Engineers no 73335

I can find no information about William's assumed war service, and would be most grateful if anyone could help me discover more. Any additional information about his brothers would be good to have, too. There appears to be a family connection with the Royal Warwickshire regiment.

The name is sometimes mistakenly spelt Mulgrew. The William Mulgrew b Ireland c1879 and registered at South Front Barracks, Dover in the 1901 census is not the same fellow.
