National Volunteers, Ireland, 1914
Here we see a formation of National Volunteers, the wing of the Nationalist Irish Volunteers that chose to support the British war effort in 1914. Around 142,000 Irish Volunteers joined the National Volunteers leaving a rump of just under 10,000 men. Support for the war effort faded as the casualties mounted in France and delays to the Home Rule Bill of 1914.
