THE GREAT WAR ANNIVERSARIES
The period 1914 to 1918, synonymous with WW1, often referred to a The Great War, was a period in world history that dramatically impacted the very being of The Leinster Regiment as it did with any existing or former regiment of the British Army.
Alongside other Regimental Asociations our own Leinster Regiment Association has embarked upon commemorative initiatives that focus upon the battalions of the Regiment and
will be supporting the initiatives of other organisations as they become known.
These commemorative events are a combination of trips to places in Belgium and France that have particular relevance to The Leinster Regiment and the families of those men who saw action in those places.
These are the officers and men of “A” Company, 1st Battalion The Leinster Regiment. “A” Company C.O. was Captain A.N. Bredin who is not thought to be in the photograph, his place being taken by Lt. W Caulfield. Capt. Bredin served in the South African war 1902 and was awared the Queens South Africa medal with 5 clasps
