Yorkshire Light Infantry guard railway junction, Dublin 1914
One of the many German misjudgements in the period before the outbreak of war in 1914 was the belief that Britain would be too distracted by the crisis in Ireland and wouldn't want to get involved on the Continent. Here we see evidence of that crisis, with a detachment of the Yorkshire Light Infantry guarding a railway junction in Dublin, in or just before 1914.
