One more charge and then be dumb,

        May the victors when they come
            Find my body near the wall.

Sorry,
It was the email address I was looking for not the postal address.
I live in Scotland and would get my ass kicked phoning Ireland using my work phone.
Noticed someone in the previous thread said they had emailed them.

That type of rank marking was used for only a short time after the Civil War as far as I know, it might narrow down the date of the photo for you.
