6087 Private Charles BRENNAN. 1st Battalion. Born Dublin. Enlisted Dublin. Died of wounds 13th May 1918. 1914 Star and bar. Charles Brennan, born in Dublin, originally enlisted in Dublin. Medal Index Card confims service initially in France and Flanders with 2nd Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers from 9th October 1914 (the 2nd Dublins had originally landed as a unit at Boulogne on 22nd August 1914, and Brennan's arrival just two months after the outbreak of war indicates that he was probably a pre-war regular recalled for service on the outbreak of the war). Brennan subsequently saw service in France with 1st Battalion Royal Dublin Fusiliers and died of wounds in France on 13th May 1918. Private Brennan was probably a casualty of the German bombardment with gas shells of the rear position where the 1st Dublins were located on 11th May 1918, the regimental history recording that the German artillery obtained numerous direct hits on company billets that night, leaving 6 men killed, 11 wounded and 231 gassed, many of the latter dying later from the effects of the gas, which was of a particularly nasty type, causing severe burns and blistering.Private Brennan is buried in Ebblingham Cemetery, grave refe

6588 Sergeant Robert Flood 5th Battalion during the Easter Risin. Born London circa 1884, joined RDF in 1899. During the Easter Rising waas tried for murder by court martial, and acquitted. He was later killed 9th May 1917 as CSM. R. Flood. It seems that after he was acquitted in 1916 he was moved from the RDF to the Royal Berkshire Regiment. From the Irish Times William John Rice, a night clerk in the Guinness brewery along with a Lieut. A. Lucas of the 2nd King Edward’s Horse Regiment, was shot dead at his place of work, by members of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers on Friday, April 28th. It appears the two men, Lucas and Rice, were making their nightly round of the brewery buildings when they were challenged by very nervous and jumpy Royal Dubliners. The soldiers later claimed they had caught Sinn Feiners infiltrating the brewery premises, and shot them. Another officer and a civilian brewery employee, Lieut. Worswick and Mr. Dockeray also a Guinness worker were shot dead around the same time at the Guiness Brewery, on 28th April. . These deaths caused considerable concern as the victims were known not to have any sympathy with the rebel cause. Company Quartermaster Sergeant Robert Flood was subsequently court-martialled for the first two deaths. In evidence for the defence it was argued that Lucas and Rice had shown signs of Sinn Fein sympathies. The judge was quick to point out that no such evidence had been produced in the case of Lucas. The Managing Director of Guinness issued a statement saying, on behalf of the company, that neither Rice nor Dockeray was in any way connected with the Sinn Fein rebellion. In the event the accused man was acquitted. The result was received with applause in the court. The Weekly Irish Times reported having devoted much space to an issue which, like the shooting of Francis Sheehy Skeffington, clearly troubled many of its readers.
