LDF parade in Cork, 1943/4

Published in Issue 5 (September/October 2016), Letters, Volume 24


Sir,—The photograph (above) depicts an LDF parade through Cork’s Patrick Street taken in 1943 or 1944. I would be grateful to any of your readers who might recognise it and contribute additional information. Some years ago I published it and received two phone calls, one from Perth, Australia, and one from a lady in Cork, who remembered the parade. I believe that the contribution of the LDF should be promoted but I cannot find any record of their contribution in the National Archives, in either Collins Barracks, Cork or Dublin, nor in the Cork or Dublin Military Museums nor in the Curragh Military Barracks.—Yours etc.,

Duntaheen Road
Co. Cork
