Soldiers Died in the Great War

Princess Victoria's - Royal Irish Fusiliers - 5/6th Battalion

The information presented here I have transcribed from "Soldiers Died in the Great War" and have added extra columns to try and give a breakdown of each man's county and country of birth were possible.

While every attempt has been made to ensure the accuracy of this transcription, there are errors in the original text. If you have any information regarding any errors here (or indeed any information which may be relevant) I would be glad to hear from you with a view to amending this list.
