#OnThisDay 1915 The 16th Royal Irish Rifles were ordered to leave camp for France. They were unexpected at Southampton, slept on the docks, sailed through a storm on a crowded ship. At Le Havre there was no beds or food & nobody knew where they had to go!
I'm David, I'm from Ireland. I am an avid fan of history. I have my B.A. in History, my M.A. in Military History and Strategic Studies,a Post Qualification Diploma in History and I've been teaching History for five years now.
I wanted to create a podcast that examines, in great detail, major Irish battles and battles allover the world in various wars that Irish people played a significant part in.
Hope you enjoy.
