Apologies for the poor image.

With thanks,

Sorry, meant to add that it is also believed to be located in a London church (no idea if that is correct).

Many thanks.

My first thought was that it looked Crimean but possibly depicting a Russian soldier,?

Thanks Leigh.

I’m ashamed to say my Connaught Ranger / 88th Foot knowledge amounts to zero.

Just my impression, which may be completely wrong.

Possibly the Collegiate Church of St Nicholas in Galway?

Thanks for this. I did have a quick Google at this location (given its connection with the regiment). Looks like the memorial there is in the form of a Celtic Cross, though I suppose there could be others.

Just wondering if there is a London church with a Peninsula/Crimean War memorial to the Rangers?

Hi JT, Try contacting the Combined Irish Regiments Association

it's worth a try as they have members of all the Irish Regiments

including the disbanded ones,
