  • Introduction: The Irish Soldier in the British Army, c. 1680-1922

    • Authors: Timothy Bowman, Richard S Grayson
      Pages: 2 - 12
      Abstract: The papers in this volume are a selection of those delivered at a conference at the National Army Museum in London in July 2022, held to mark the centenary of the disbandment of the ‘southern’ Irish regiments on the creation of the Irish Free State.  This introduction summarizes each paper, situating them in analysis of past historiography on the Irish soldier in the British Army.  It argues that while the First World War still looms large in that historiography, researchers are now more often moving beyond it, while also analysing matters such as class, gender and global contexts.

  • The Journal of Major General Robert Stearne of the Royal Regiment of

    • Authors: Justin Saddington
      Pages: 13 - 30
      Abstract: This article contains an analysis of Major General Robert Stearne’s journal of his service with the Royal Regiment of Ireland between 1678 and 1717. The article examines the provenance of the manuscript and addresses a major problem regarding its authenticity and relationship to the published accounts written by his regimental comrades. In so doing, it attempts to bring greater clarity to the question of its originality and to the sources that may have been used in its production. It then addresses the place of the journal within the historiography of the period and explores some of the new information that it contains.

  • Irish Junkers' The Irish Landed Class and the British Army in the
           Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries

    • Authors: Nicholas Perry
      Pages: 31 - 48
      Abstract: The Irish landed class from the eighteenth century onwards was one of the British Army’s main sources of officers; and as a national/regional elite with military service central to their sense of identity they have been compared to the Prussian Junker class. Their political relationship with the British government was, however, complex and occasionally confrontational. This article examines the extent of their military involvement in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, compares this with their counterparts in Britain, and suggests some parallels between their experience and that of regional landed elites in the Prussian Army in the late eighteenth century.

  • An Irish Catholic Amateur Military Tradition in the British Army' The
           Irish Militia, 1793-1908

    • Authors: William Butler
      Pages: 49 - 66
      Abstract: Both an Irish military tradition and an amateur military tradition have been explored in the historiography involving the study of British Army as they relate to forces recruited and serving in Ireland over two centuries. This article will take this exploration further by arguing that it is possible to demonstrate that an Irish Catholic amateur military tradition existed in the Irish Militia, as established in 1793, and existing until the turn of the twentieth century. This Irish Catholic tradition fed into these two broader traditions, becoming integral parts of them, while also exerting Irish identity in its own ways.

  • Irish Regiments and Soldiers in the Crimean War – their contribution
           and legacy

    • Authors: David Murphy
      Pages: 67 - 80
      Abstract: During the Crimean War (1853-6), five Irish regiments served with the British expeditionary force, while thousands of Irish soldiers served across the British Army in non-Irish regiments. These Irish troops made a significant contribution, and the war was followed with considerable interest in Ireland, encouraging civilians to volunteer to serve as doctors, nurses, and engineers. This article will outline the context of this Irish involvement in the Crimean War and the level of public interest, while also referring to the survival of an awareness of that war in Irish folk memory until well into the twentieth century.

  • Soldier Stories: The Irish in the Army from the Late Nineteenth Century to
           the First World War

    • Authors: Catherine Wynne
      Pages: 81 - 105
      Abstract: By drawing on soldiers’ writings and their broader cultural representations, this article enables new ways of seeing Irish soldier identity as socially and politically mobile. Using Lady Butler’s famous ’Listed for the Connaught Rangers: Recruiting in Ireland (1878) as its starting point, it explores the Irish soldier’s positioning from the late Victorian period to the First World War. Analysing narratives of William Butler, John Lucy, Francis Ledwidge and Patrick MacGill, alongside fictional and visual representations of Irish soldiers, it is demonstrated how Irish soldierly identity was responsive and shifting during this period of complex political and social change for Ireland

  • ‘A fanatical separation money mob’: The British Army Soldier’s Wife
           in Wartime Ireland, 1914-1918

    • Authors: Fionnuala Walsh
      Pages: 106 - 124
      Abstract: This article focuses on the experiences of Irish soldiers’ families during the Great War. Soldiers’ families occupied a complex place in Irish society. Initially supported and praised for their husband’s service, working-class women quickly came under criticism and surveillance from the British state and civic authorities. They developed a reputation for excessive drinking and neglect of their children, blamed on the corrupting influence of the separation allowance. The 1916 Easter Rising and the by-elections in 1917 and 1918 provided opportunities for violent clashes and for the negative reputation of the women to be cemented in the public imagination. Separation women as an identifiable group disappeared in the aftermath of the war but the difficulties and challenges for Irish military families continued.

  • Ireland and the First World War: Myth, Memory and History

    • Authors: Niamh Gallagher
      Pages: 125 - 142
      Abstract: The First World War is a major event in world history and in Ireland’s history as well. This article demonstrates how myth, memory and history became intertwined in contemporary understandings of Irish participation in the conflict, as well as in subsequent scholarly writing. Through examples including recruitment statistics, policy decisions, the war at sea, memorialisation, unionism and Northern Ireland, and the Irish Revolution, this article demonstrates that a triangular relationship between myth, memory, and history has pervaded our understanding of the history of the war itself. A critical appreciation for how and when these phenomena intersect is therefore needed for a better understanding of Ireland and the First World War – and how we as historians continue to write its history today.

  • The Disbandment of the Southern Irish Regiments – 1922

    • Authors: Timothy Bowman
      Pages: 143 - 161
      Abstract: The disbandment of the Southern Irish Regiments of the British army occurred in July 1922 due to the creation of the Irish Free State and the effects of the so-called ‘Geddes Axe’ on the British army. Special arrangements meant that officers and men who wished to continue their service in the British army were able to transfer to other regiments and there were very few compulsory redundancies. This saw limited public concern about these regiments. The preservation of those regiments associated with Northern Ireland was, however, the subject of extensive lobbying and James Craig, the first Prime Minister of Northern Ireland, showed considerable ability in negotiations which ensured the survival of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and Royal Irish Fusiliers.

  • The Irish soldier in the British army during the Napoleonic Wars,

    • Authors: James Deery
      Pages: 162 - 169
      Abstract: Consideration by historians of Irish soldiers’ service in the regular British army during the Napoleonic Wars has been primarily through the perspective of the Irish regiments and the Irish enlisted man. This note presents new perspectives by demonstrating that Irish service was more widespread due to the presence of Irish officers and enlisted men across all regiments of the regular army. Important aspects of Irish service such as promotion, discipline, and the presence of Irish families are highlighted with the intention of facilitating a new perspective on the relationship between the regular British army and Irish society.
