Irish soldier saved Adolf Hitlerâs life
- the Hitler story and Keogh is doing the rounds at the moment (as is
the one about Pte Tandy VC).
Re Keogh, he was captured in 1914 not 1916; certainly led an
interesting life but how true it all is..... difficult to tell. For
example, the George('s) Cross is only awarded to civilians and is not
for military personnel. Additionally the George Cross only came into
being in 1940 so how Keogh got it as a result of fighting in WW1 is
difficult to understand.
Corisande from the Great War Forum/Rootschat has done quite a bit on
Keogh and the Irish Brigade and his page re Keogh can be seen here :
