Narrative

"The 64 th was stationed at various garrisons in Ireland between 1873 and 1875: Clare Castle
1873, Limerick 1874, Dunbar 1875. This was likely to be “police action” as needed with the
unrest which arose periodically in Ireland. In 1876 the Regiment returned to England and was
stationed at Portsmouth – this may also have been garrison duties, perhaps in support of the
UK's main Naval Base." - SJL
