Thankyou sooooo much, NO, I didn't know that, I was just researching him, but know nothing except that he was born 1896 and was possibly a Manager at the @Labour Exchange' in Magherafelt (sp).

Have you tried contacting The Inniskilling Museum, The Castle, Enniskillen, Co Fermangh, NI BT74 7HL.
Do you know where or when he was born?

Thank you for your help unfortunately i dont have any info at all on him as he had died long before i was born. All my relatives on my mothers side have all passed as she has. all i know is peter quinn married my granny (matilda mc collough nee noble, she was presbyterian from portadown) after they had both been widowed. i will follow up on monday to delve further into the info you gave me many thanks derb4u.

He fought with the Inniskillings and was wounded but survived.  Died 1969.
The photo in the hospital shows him and other wounded soldiers.  Found out recently that the tunics they are wearing were given to all wounded soldiers who were being sent home so people would understand and not hand them a white flower![/size]
