Edmund O’Sullivan operates the amazing Irish Brigade website https://www.irishbrigade.co.uk/
His father was in the 2nd Battalion London Irish Rifles and the Irish Brigade from the start of 1942 until March 1946.
The 38 (Irish) Infantry Brigade was formed in early 1942 and comprised men who were largely from Ireland or of Irish origin. Over the next three and a half years, the Irish Brigade would gain an unrivalled reputation during Allied campaigns in Tunisia, Sicily and mainland Italy.
