My father Terence Kevin Mc Cann joined the Connaught Rangers. When this was disbanded he joined another regiment, but I don't know which one. During 1914 - 1918, he was a prisoner of war and was working on a farm during this period which meant that he had access to food. When he came back to Dublin, he worked in the grocery trade, but I know very little about his war time experience as he rarely talked about it.
I have some postcards containing poems and songs written during the years 1914 - 1918. I also have some photographs - one of my father posing with his comrades and one taken when he enlisted for the Connaught Rangers. There is also a group photograph, I am not sure where it was taken, possibily in the barracks in Aldershot. Terence Kevin McCann is the 5th person from the left on the second row.
