My name is Robert McEvoy and I'm currently tracing my great-Grandfather's service in World War I.
His name was Charles McEvoy, born in c. 1890 in Lurgan, Co. Armagh, Regiment number 17237 of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers.
According to his medal record from the british archives it shows that he first fought in France from December 1915 onwards. He was a Private and from his dates of deployment date, I surmise that he was either part of the 8th or 9th of the RDF's. He survived the war and lived until the late 1940's
I realise it is a little raggy but i believe that this postcard is of Charlie McEvoy's company. My great grandfather is the gentleman third from right in the front row (lower part of his face is partially obscured as a result of a crack in the photo).
I don't know how much use this photo is, or indeed if any experts out there have any additional information relating to it (I note the group is flanked by what appears to be lamps on tripods, and a tripod and lamp lie infront of them also - signalling lamps? Perhaps an engineers company?
Thanks in advance.
