The BA

I know of many Dublin people who served in the British Army or forces.
There used to be medical scholarships attached and many were in TCD
and RCSI.

Brian Mayne, Augustine Darragh, Gerry Maher, Jack Harte and many
others are in that bracket. The Britsh Legion service at Leopardstown
quietly served ex-soldiers for years. My Half-Brit cousins served in
the British Army because there fathers were English. My brother Peter
served in the Irish Army (Lebanon included) and we are very proud of
him in my family. Some of my family were irregulars as Gerry O’Connell
might term them. I consider them antidemocrats but that’s life.
