20/04/2021 Lieut Francis St Leger Greer M.C. We regret to announce the death in action of Lieut. Frank Greer, of the Irish Guards, the second son of Captain and Mrs Greer of Curragh Grange, Co. Kildare. At the beginning of the War Lieut. Greer entered a cavalry regiment, but afterwards joined the Irish Guards, and lately had been attached to the bombing section. (Many cavalry regiments dismounted due to less need for this type of warfare from 1914). He saw a good deal of active service, and was awarded the Military Cross for conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He was a splendid type of officer, and his loss will be keenly felt, not alone by his brother officers in the distinguished regiment to which he belonged, but by all in civil life who were acquainted with him.
