1920 Dec 23. Andrew Moynihan was a 43 year old married farmer. He was arrested by Auxiliaries in Kerry when incriminating documents were found in his house. He was put in the back of a Crossley in the charge of Section Leader C Sutton . Along the way back to Tralee. Moynihan was "shot trying to escape" . A "T/Cadet J H Jennings" was involved which should be this man. The only other Jennings in ADRIC, CF Jennings, did not serve in H Coy.

1923 Jul/Sep. A John C Jennings married a Margaret W Reid in West Ham. Her middle name may be Webster, which may explain the entry on the passenger list of 1932.

1924 Jul 23 The J C L Jennings is probably him - the name is fairly rare.

1932 Nov 13. John Cyril Jennings (age 40) and Margaret Webster Jennings (age 34) arrive in UK on SS Cap Arcona from Lisbon. He is a Chemist and UK address is 3 Dulwich Wood Park, SE19. They live in UK and travel 1st Class. Again I have no idea if this is him or not.
