1920 May 8. I was looking through some old documents and found a letter to my grandfather from a company in London, Cox and Co., Charing Cross Road. It is dated May 8, 1920, and indicates that in response to a communication from my grandfather, the sum of £750 will be sent to a certain Lieutenant FJ Ashe, Irish Fusiliers. Ashe's MIC just gives John Francis Ashe and an address at 19 Chisilton Road, Fulham. But his RAF record which links him to R Irish Fusiliers shows his next of kin at Palace View, Tuam, Galway, and shows him to be the son of a RIC constable. I have no idea why Ashe was being paid such a large sum
