SPRING was effectively one officer of the 24th.
On this forum, the member 90th had already posted a photo of him with others officers of the 24th (album photos / see section memorabilla from memory). It's not thé same photo.

I think Isandula has posted this photo previously , either he or J. Young will be able to identify the other chap . I'm about to head out , unfortunately I cant help . I've certainly seen this picture previously , I dont actually have it myself but it may be in one of my books ? .

YMOB,

Try again - the details above are for William Sugden not Spring. Incidentally, Spring's father is commemorated on the Mutiny Memorial outside the Law Courts in Tralee, Co Kerry.
