The Leinster Regiment (extract from the Army and Auxiliary Forces" Colonel C. Cooper King, R.M.A. , 1894 )

The regiment, though bearing an Irish title, had anything but an Irish origin.  The 1st battalion was raised as the “100th of the line, or Prince of Wales’ Royal Canadians,” though one of its predecessors had been the City of Dublin Regiment.     The 2nd was the 109th, which had originated in the East India Company’s army, and, raised in 1854, was first the 3rd Bombay European Regiment, then the 3rd Bombay Regiment, and then the 109th Bombay Infantry.     The first of the two was raised in Canada in 1858, and its badge of the Prince of Wales’ plume and the maple-leaf dates from that time, while the name “Niagara” on the colours was gained by a former 100th, which fought at Fort Niagara in 1813.  But there had been regiments of the same number in 1760-63, in 1780-85, in 1794 (which became the 92nd on reduction), in 1805-1818 (when it had become the Prince Regent’s County of Dublin Regiment, the 99th), and in 1798-1818 (having begun as the New South Wales or 102nd Regiment).     The present 1st battalion has seen no war service since its formation; the second battalion served in Central India during the Mutiny, and was present at Rathghur, Baroda, Saugur, Garracota, the Pass of Muddenpur, Betwa, Jhansi, Loharee, Koonch (where the temperature varied from 115 to 130 degrees), Muttra, Garowtee, Calpee, and Gwailor.  In 1862 the regiment was reinforced by 500 men from the “Jager” corps of the “Brittish German Legion” of Crimean days.  There had been two others of its number, which lived from 1761-63 and from 1794-95.   The scarlet uniform has blue facings, with the name and plume on the button, the plume, crowned, on the collar, and the plume over maple-leaves on the helmet-plate.  The Militia battalions are the king’s County, the Queen’s County, and the Royal Meath, the last of which formerly wore the “Tara Brooch” on their Glengarries.    Its usual titles have been the “Royal Canadians,” from the 100th; and the “German Legion,” from the number of Germans that entered the ranks of the 109th in 1862.  The depot was at Birr.

Lieutenant J. V. Holland Leading His Bombers Through A Village Held By The Enemy, After Driving Them From Their Dug Outs.

Not content with bombing hostile dug outs during a heavy engagement, Lieutenant John Vincent Holland, of the Leinster Regiment, fearlessly led his bombers through the British artillery barrage and cleared a greater part of the village in front. He started out with twenty-six bombers and finished up with only five, after capturing some fifty prisoners. By this very gallant action he undoubtedly broke the spirit of the enemy and thus saved many casualties. For his most conspicuous bravery he was awarded the V.C.

The History of the 36th (Ulster) Division. by Cyril Falls.  (1922)


The History of the 36th (Ulster) Division. by Cyril Falls. (1922)

This is an outstanding history as might be expected of one of the foremost military historians of our time, who served with the division in 11th R Inniskilling Fusiliers and later as a staff officer.He has produced a clear and very readable history which provides not only a record of the divisions operations, both large and small scale, but also a descriptive account of the fighting and of life as it was in and out of the line. The maps are first class with the trench systems standing out clearly. Appendices contain order of battle details, with changes, VC citations and a complete list of honours and awards, including foreign awards. The division, formed mainly from the Ulster Volunteer Force, came into being in September 1914 as the Ulster Division with brigades numbered 1st, 2nd and 3rd. A month later it was numbered 36th, retaining its Ulster title and the brigades were renumbered 107th, 108th and 109th. As a divisional sign the Red Hand of Ulster was adopted. The 36th arrived in.........
