MSPC's 2019 release will be the Brigade Activity Series

The Military Archives has announced that the Brigade Activity Series will be the 2019 tranche of records released from the Military Service (1916-1923) Pensions Collection.

The records, which archivists have been working on for some time, were created by the Brigade Activity Committees set up around the country to assist the Referee and Advisory Committee in the verification of claims, so are sure to be very illuminating.

To mark the launch, and as a clear indicator of the importance of this collection, a public symposium is being organised and a new publication will be released. Minister Paul Kehoe, TD, will launch the Brigade Activity files on Saturday 23 February. The event will be free and open to the public but the registration process will be strict.

UPDATE, 4 February: The event is now fully booked.
