This question relates to the 1921 Census entry as discussed for William Henry Baker here:
In the transcript for his entry it says that he was at the following location:
1st Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment, French Furze Camp, Curragh, Ireland.
When I went to add his Census fact into my tree I saw several Curragh listed:
I went with the most obvious (Curragh Camp, Kildare, Ireland).
I based this decision on an article I found on the internet (Curragh Camp) which does state:
The Curragh Camp is an army base and military college in The Curragh, County Kildare, Ireland. It is the main training centre for the Irish Defence Forces and is home to 2,000 military personnel.
But it does not mention this French Furze Camp from what I can tell. Why I try to search for that the first hit is about a racing horse. 😊
So, my question is two fold:
- Have I selected the correct Curragh for the location of my Census fact?
- IS there any more information about this French Furze Camp that William was serving at?
