The Leinster Leader of March 1958 had the following article reproduced in the 'Kildare Online Electronical History Journal' and I'm trying to establish if the mentioned Sergeant Martin Butler was born Liverpool 1906 son of Sergeant Martin Butler, born Calverstown, Co Kildare 1865, died Naas 1941, who was my grandmother Mary Cahill's 1st cousin. If correct his mother would be Anne (Nannie) Loakman and his brother Leo Anthony Butler whilst his paternal grandparents would have been George Butler and Marcella Cahill.

"Under the heading ‘A Visitor to Naas’ there is news of the visit home of Sergeant Martin Butler who had just left the Malayan jungles for a three-week holiday in Ireland. Sergeant Butler had fought all through the Second World War and had the distinction of being the first soldier on the British side to meet the advancing American Army in South Italy. The Naas man had indeed featured in the international press at the time of this episode, according to the Leader correspondent."

Seeking any information on the family.

Mr Terry Arthur.
