ympathies for France manifested itself in the decision to form an Ambulance Corps (four ambulance wagons), for which three hundred volunteers were accepted - far too many. But a number of these much preferred the idea of carrying rifles rather than stretchers and these took advantage of a free trip to France so they could get into the fight. Kirwan was the man they rallied to and thus the Compagnie Irlandaise was born - all on the pay of a halfpenny a day. Mark you, it wasn’t as simple as all that but you’ll have to read the book to get the picture. There were two lots of Irish volunteers, one from London the other from Dublin. The London Irish were not very popular with the locals whereas the Dublin Irish went down better, and that had to be sorted out.

'This is the story of what happened to them and an entertaining story it is. There was the Irish sentry challenging an unfortunate French local with shouts of “Qui, qui,qui - who’s there? the local was struck dumb, totally confused, while the Irishman kept roaring out “Qui, qui”.

Kirwan’s comment on this is enlightening: We cannot forget that if we were late in the field, we were last out of it. We must treasure it as one of the most satisfactory of our reminiscences, that we heard the last shot and saw the last German souls sent into eternity, during the Franco-German war .....
