#OnThisDay 1915 The Irish Guards were taken off the line at Festubert. In their time in the trenches, twenty-two men were killed, 284 wounded, and 86 missing. As they were leaving the trenches, they were hit by high explosive shells & 10 more were killed.
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.
