It was a dangerous assignment and so different units went out on different days in rotation. If these are Dublin Fusiliers, it was at a minimum, one of only two or three excursions by their unit before the (foreseeable) disaster.

About six years ago I started a thread entitled , "The telegraphist on the armoured train". This may add something to your investigations.

I'll post below some artists' impressions and photos of the armoured train incident, and some pics of other armoured trains.

Thanks Rob. Great pics. I particularly like the French one with its little advert for meat extract ( a bit of Gallic black homour maybe ).
