Stupid question really but i am right in thinking that service in ireland, even during the uprising was not classed as service overseas. Its just that grandad served there during the rising and i'm trying to get a handle on his where abouts etc.
Apparently when mum came home and told grandad she was courting an irish catholic he nearly had an attack, fortunately age must have mellowed him because he came to like him. Which just shows that time can heal if you want it enough.
