Micheal (Royal Dublin Fusiliers No. 19974) met my grandmother Margaret Lynch, a domestic Nurse who had also left Ireland and they met in Southport (we think) and married in 1918 in his Dublin Fusiliers Uniform. the letter is from their daughter Peggy who describes how her mam (Margaret Lynch) was so excited to return home on St. Patrick's Day after the war. Michael O'Rourke returned home to serve in the Irish Army and as far as we know he was a driver and bodyguard for General Richard Mulchay. He also worked for the Northern Railway and went as an escort on the train to the South (Cork?). They both went on to live a long and happy life together in Ireland.
