Re: Royal Hibernian Military School.

Hello Peter,
A long shot I know as your post was getting on for nine years ago ! I've just come across it as I'm trying to find out when my grandfather Frederick Jesse Gibney joined and how long he was there. I have his signing on papers for the Royal Field Artillery, aged 14 years and nine months dated 13th June 1892. As you probably know, one question on the document is ' have you lived away from your father for more than three years?' and the answer is given ' Yes, at the Royal Hiberian Military School'. Whilst my grandfather was born in Sussex, his father James William Gibney, also a soldier, was born in Ireland but died in 1880 aged thirty eight when Frederick was only three. If you can be of any help I'd be very grateful ! Many thanks, Geoff Collinge
