Biography

 ‘Dennis Sullivan, The Huts, Gretna, who resembled the description of a man who had been continuously toasting the Kaiser in public houses, was fined 19/6d for Breach of the Peace and assaulting Seargeant Finney, outside Carlisle gaol. He had been singing an Irish song which had been “banned in the barracks at Aldershot”. Sergeant Finney said that he had to treat Sullivan rather roughly.’ – Secondary Sources: ‘Patrick Welsh and Patrick McNicholas labourers of The Huts, Old Graitney, were fined £1 for stealing two cabbages from a field during 1916.’ – Gretna’s Secret War by Gordon Routledge (Bookcase, 1999), p. 13.
