I AM editing a volume on the writings of Major John MacBride (1868-1916). I would be keen to hear from anyone who may hold any of his writings.

I am also interested in any letters, written by men who served in the Irish Transvaal Brigade, (18991900), under Major MacBride, during the Boer War. I can be contacted by email at, westportbooks@yahoo. co. uk Anthony Jordan, 52 Gilford Road, Sandymount, Dublin 4.
