ANOTHER "IRISH SWORD FOUND"
A new museum opened it's door here in Ireland, called the "Irish Army Museum" at Curragh,
Dublin. Their collection includes two Thompsons. The only one on display is serial number 914
with a "L" drum installed. Serial number 914 was shipped to George G. Rorke, on June 7,
1921, via American Rail Express.
From its condition it was not stored in perfect "Collector conditions", but if only this gun could
tell its story. Next quarter I have an article with the first hand testimony of how the IRA used
the Thompson in its first combat use.
