Typescript letter of appointment, nominating Major James Clymo Milton, M.B.E., East Lancashire Regiment, to form part of the panel to try John Brennan by court martial, signed by Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, John Denton Pinkstone French, Lord French,
1921 March 7.
|Main Creator:||French, John Denton Pinkstone, Earl of Ypres, 1852-1925|
There is no John Brennan listed as a causualty during the War of Independence. [Perhaps he escaped execution, being saved by the signing of the truce on 9th July 1921, four months after arrangements were first made for his court martial?].
A "J. Brennan" is recorded as being one of Michael Collins' "Twelve Apostles".
Major [later Lieutenant Colonel] James Clymo Milton, O.B.E. was posted for service on the General Headquarters Staff in Ireland as Provost Marshal, responsible for military discipline and the prosecution of captured rebels.
