S/7100. CPL John Mahon,was possibly injured in a Gas attack. From the post-card you can see a stamp with 'K G Lager Giessen' on it. I presume this indicates John was a prisoner in the camp there. Was the badge on his chest a POW ID number?

7126 James McGuire joined the Dubs in 1900 and served 1901-1902 in South Africa with the 1st Bn and stayed with them serving in Malta and Egypt till 1908 when he went onto the Reserve list. He was recalled into the 2nd Bn and arrived in France in Sept 1914 where he stayed till he received a GSW to the head on 13/01/1915, after recovering he was sent to the 3rd training Bn and stayed there till he was released to work in the Iron Works and finally discharged in 1917 as unfit to serve. I'm interested in the 2nd Bn's time in France until Jimmy took the shot to the head, especially what they were doing 13/01/1915, incidentely he was declared as being KIA and carried his Death Cert the rest of his life along with the Silver plate in his head which covered the gap in his skull. I have Jimmy's WW1 medal Card as well as copies of his pension records, it looks like he doesnt have a Service History, on his medal card he's also listed as a Pte GS/140747 in the Royal Fusiliers, and in a book on Coatbridge Men who served in the Great War his number is given as 22747 in the Dubs.

7730 Sergeant Michael Horan . During the 1st world war he was sent to fight in Ypres in Belgium with the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers and was killed in the second battle of Ypres on May 10 1915. Using the date he died we seem to think he managed to avoid being killed by the poison gas attack in Ypres and may have been killed in when a farmhouse was shelled by the Germans. It would appear that Michael Horan was KiA during the Battle of Frezenberg 8th-13th May 1915. Frezenberg is about 3 miles NE of Ypres. On the morning of the 10th the Germans did release gas but without any great success, the battalion took up positions in woods near Potijze Chateau, took part in the attack and reached Frezenberg but were driven back to Mouse Trap Farm. Embarked on the 2nd, disembarked on the 3rd and killed in action on the 10th
