    Murray E BW Armagh

    Hi Chalky
    I need a bit of a help here researching a Black Watch man who enlisted in Armagh, trying to find an Armagh address which would allow me to include him in the book of WW1 causalities for Armagh which I am doing at the moment.
    Many Thanks
    Joe

    Hi Joe,

    I have looked at a few sources and cannot find any Armagh address. The Sion Mills one is on all the docs I looked at.

    Only thing I can say for certain is that his date of death according to Wauchope is KIA 25/4/17

    He had three Army Numbers:

    Hi Chalky
    I checked local papers this afternoon and no mention of Edward Murray in Armagh, may have been working there or had been at the Royal School Armagh which had produced quite a few recruits to the Black Watch before the Great war started and at the beginning of the war. I will check the Royal School book to morrow.
    Thanks for your help will let you know if come across any thing
    Regards
    Joe
