Royal Irish Rifles - 5th Battalion
The information printed in "Soldiers Died in the Great War" and presented here has been enhanced with information extracted from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC.org). Where a difference in Surname, Forename, Rank or Service number occurred the information from the CWGC has been put in brackets i.e. SDGW (CWGC).
Every attempt has been made to ensure the accuracy of this transcription but there are errors in both the original text and on CWGC.org. If you have any information regarding any errors here I would be glad to hear from you with a view to amending this list.
