My grandfather, born 1886, came from Co. Westmeath.
He came over to England, met my grandmother, lived possibly in London area, and then served in Irish Guards. Went to war in 1914 and died as a p.o.w. in 1918. My father, also Patrick, was born in 1916 and told me that his father came from Castlepollard and lived/worked at the 'castle'. Some of the family, including cousin Marie, emigrated to the States. Should be grateful for any information please. A cousin of my fathers, Dan, visited us once in Sussex.
