How bizaare!  I am currently transcribing some letters sent by a soldier in the 11th Battalion, Hampshire Regiment and couldnt understand why he was putting an address in Ireland.

Ive got Birr, Kings County and Millingar.  Are any of these close?  There is also Moore Park, Kilworth, County Cork.

You may want to visit http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums and ask on there.  They are a mind of information for things like this...

 I was very excited to see the postings about the Victoria Barracks,particularly the reference to ASC.
I have lost my Great Grandfather.The only information I have is photograph taken in Belfast in a well worn Major's uniform in circa 1914.James Fisher was a soldier certainly and I suspect a long service one.My only real lead is that my Grandmother-his daughter- was born in Cork in 1883.The 3 strands seem to tie up.
The ASC stationed at Victoria Barracks.
My grandmothers birth place.
The obvious involvement of my Great Grandfather.
I really need confirmation that the ASC were stationed in Cork in 1883?
Did they return there in 1902 at the end of the Boer War?
Many thanks for any help.
