An Post issues a bulletin on “New Issues” on four occasions during the year. When, I saw the bulletin in early January, it did not make me think twice. It was issued on my wife’s birthday on 23rd January and I tried to buy it in two County Louth post offices at lunch-time.
Seemingly a History lecturer at NUIG (Dr Leo Keohane) who is one of the academics who knows about the Irish Citizen Army spotted that this is NOT Captain Jack White.
For nearly a year now, I have wondered where I had seen the photograph before. In a comment on another thread, “Ben Madigan” mentions a pamphlet by great Belfast socialist which has a photograph of Captain Jack White “looking dapper” in his Citizen Army uniform.
I wonder if this is the same photograph I have seen thirty odd years ago and the same one used by An Post.
