eddiec Posted 6 August , 2006 Share Posted 6 August , 2006 I would been keen to find out information on my grandfather who served as a Sapper. This I know from a war memorial plaque. His name was John Connolly (DOB 29 Sept 1884) when he died (in 1961 when a was a baby) an insertion was put in the newspaper from the Royal Engineers (36th Ulster Division) Old boys Association and was given a legion funeral. I contacted the Royal Engineers Association but they were formed after this and had no info. The Legion Branch couldnt find the relevant records (and have since closed) and the Headquarters in Belfast couldnt help either. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.
