A British Army Captain?



[Issued by An Post Tomorrow]

On an IRISH stamp?

Was it FOR T…

Jack White, [from Antrim] a former British Army Captain volunteered to train the Irish Citizen Army  [Irish worker’s militia formed in 1913] and he offered 50 pounds towards the cost of shoes for workers so they would be able to train properly. The Army was drilled in Croydon Park in Dublin’s Fairview.


Fair enough, spose.

Not to be confused with the smuggler of the same name [with a pub off the N11].
