IRISH GREAT WAR SOCIETY

About Me

Interested in all things military especially Irish regiments in WW1 and the Royal Munster Fusiliers above all, due to my grandfather and great grandfather who served. Also my Great Grand Uncle who was a major in the Royal Flying Corps and later a Colonel in the Irish Free State.Archaeologist and amateur military historian as well as being an avid colllector. Having served as a CPO in the Naval Service Reserve and now as a serving member of the Reserve as a CS.

Headstone is that of Josh Honan who went ashore with the Canadians on D-Day at Juno Beach , minus 10. That means he was gone ashore ten minutes ahead of the main assault force to disarm the mines. Two survived from Josh's landing craft. He was also an instructor at the Military College in the Curragh before he joined the Canadians during the war.RIP, Brian.
