#OnThisDay 1916 Pte James Crozier, from Belfast, was executed for desertion. Crozier was filled with rum beforehand & had to be carried to the post, where he was hooked onto like ‘meat in a butcher’s shop’, boasted Frank Crozier (of later, Auxiliary ‘fame’). His execution squad were men of his own battalion and they shot wide so he was shot in the head by the officer.
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.
