The Royal Munster Fusiliers in the Great War, by Martin Staunton, edition, Microform in EnglishPages:   Can anyone recommend a book on the Royal Munster Fusiliers in WW1. In particular, I am looking to find out as much detail as possible on the 8th Battalion.

There are a few books on Amazon, but I am not sure which one would be the the most interesting and informative. Naval & Military Press have in my experience always provided a most efficient service, publishing a wealth of titles of interest to armed forces enthusiasts throughout the ages.

Amongst the titles are some real bargains. 1st Battalion, Royal Munster Fusiliers were in Rangoon, Burma when war broke out in August They returned to Britain, landing at Avonmouth on the 10th of January They joined 86th Brigade, 29th Division at Coventry and on the 16th of March they sailed from Avonmouth for Gallipoli, via Alexandria and Mudros.

The Royal Munster Fusiliers held the 'home' Depot for their three Reserve Battalions at Ballymullen Barracks, Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland, where since most of the regiment's recruits enlisted in peacetime and received their first training before being assigned to regular battalions stationed around the UK and Ireland.

Regular officers and N.C.O.s also provided. Ballymullen Barracks in Tralee was the regimental depot of the Royal Munster Fusiliers prior to the establishment of the Irish Free State. It was through the barracks gates that Kerrymen enlisted for a career in the Munsters.

Ambrose and Dorothy: The Story of War and Love of a Royal Munster Fusilier, written and researched by Ambrose's grandson, serves as both a family memoir and a history lesson on one of the most sobering times in world history and one of the most illustrious military organizations, the Royal Munster Fusiliers.

The date was 8th May when the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Munster Fusiliers received General Absolution from their padre, Father Francis Gleeson. The four companies of the Munsters formed three sides of a square in front of a roadside shrine, an appropriate spot for the priest to do his work as their commander, Colonel Victor Rickard.

A third is Isaac Levy, of the Royal Munster Fusiliers. Levy, too, is recuperating well. He was taken ill one evening it seems, but continued marching with his regiment – that interminable round of marching, tempered with fighting, which brought the Allies to the environs of Paris, but has now, thank goodness, begun in the opposite direction.

Westlake mentions Lt. Gowers and has some detail about the fight and refers to Captain S. McCance's history of the Royal Munster Fusiliers as the source, if you don't have this information (British Battalions in France & Belgium, ) let me know.
