Andy,

Only two Concannons in the campaign one in the 99th with the initial C., the other a Telegrapher in ‘C’ Troop, Royal Engineers with the initials R. A.

The London Gazette website is playing up so I searched the web instead the best I can find is this:
Concannon, Patrick (1914-16 and 1918-20) ; Mentioned in despatches ; Captain, R.E. and Middlesex Regiment ; Dardanelles 7 months.   Which appears in The London County Council in the Great War 1914-18.  He could be a possible given his R. E. connection, I will check the Medal Roll in the morning.

The D.C.M. should clinch it.

Andy,

The Telegrapher in C Troop is Richard A. Concannon, but when looking for him I think I discovered your P. Concannon, and not only that but where he lived.

A letter to a newspaper commenting about Rorke’s Drift, published on 16th April 1934, reads as follows:
A South African Battle
Sir, - It was with great interest that I read of the suggestion regarding a “Rorke’s Drift” battle honour to the very gallant old 24th Regiment.
It may be forgotten that this splendid and heroic defence was ably assisted by Lieut. Chard of the Royal Engineers, who won the V. C. for organising, with all kinds of odds and ends, the defences behind which the action was fought and won.

3, Asmuns-hill, N. W.     P. Concannon


The address is now in Hampstead Garden Surburb, in the London Borough of Brent.  Which was covered by the former ‘S’ Division mentioned above.

Still having trouble accessing the London Gazette site, but hopefully you could try a Census check on the address.

Hi Steve

Many thanks for the information

This is so frustrating as we can trace him through history but unable to link him to the Zulu War of 1879 at the moment scratch

Yes, I agree. Some of the references in the last cutting also seem a bit unbelievable. In China with the French and with the US Cavalry in the Indian Territories? I note his son was a newspaper reporter!

I am gravitating back to "C" Troop RE. While the AZW medal is to 14383 Richard A Concannon, the Egypt medal is to 14383 Richard P Concannon. In the 1881 census "C" Troop is in Aldershot and "Richard Concannon" is a telegraphist, born 1859 in Ireland. I can see no medals of any kind for "Patrick". How on earth did he combine the AZW, Egypt, 2nd Boer War and Great War with the French in China and US Indian fighting! Plus a school drill instructor, school attendance inspector and special policeman ?

Andy,

Nothing obvious in The London Gazette relating to Concannon.

Very sceptical.
