One other James Brennan (Brannan) was born in Co. Longford between 1880 and 1890, in 1887 Although a number of James Brennans served with the Royal Engineers in the Great War, it isn't clear which of them - if any - was this James Brennan. Unfortunately, his army record is not available to view, either by virtue of being destroyed during WW2 or he remained in the Army after 1920 and his records are maintained by the British Army.|
