Enlisted: Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland. Died: 24-May-1915 Killed in Action aged 21 Memorial: Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial, Panel 44 and 46, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium Second Battle Of Ypres: St Julien, April - May 1915, The 2nd Battalion of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers suffered near annihilation during the second battle of Ypres on the 24th of May 1915. On May 24th, 1915, around 2.45am, the Germans launched a poison gas attack. By 9:30 pm, out of a battalion strength of 666 men, all that remained when the battalion ‘retired’ was one officer and twenty other ranks 'retired' to headquarters. For the record, in just eighteen and three quarter hours, the Dublin Fusiliers had suffered a loss of 645 men who were blown to bits, gassed, or driven insane by the effects of poisonous gas. In the years that followed the ending of the war, many of those who did survive the attack and suffered a gas wound, would die a very slow and painful death from weakened lungs. The German gas attack in the early hours of May 24, was described as being about three miles long and forty feet deep. The Allied troops in the trenches had little hope of escape. The 2nd Battalion of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers were serving at the front that night. The gas bleached the grass, blighted the trees and left a 'broad scar of destruction in its wake'. Outside the city of Ypres on the road to Menin, stands the majestic Menin Gate memorial. Engraved on that memorial are 143 names of Dublin Fusiliers belonging to the 2nd Battalion who died on the 24th of May 1915.
