Private B.F. MacSwiney

10th (Scottish) Battalion, The King’s (Liverpool Regiment)

Brisco Francis Macswiney, second son of the late Lieut.-Colonel Eugene V. MacSwiney, was killed in action at Hooge, Flanders, on June 16, 1915.


He entered Birkenhead School in 1900 and left in 1901. At the outbreak of war he was in the Royal Insurance Company, and had for six years been in the Cheshire Engineers. He at once enlisted in the Liverpool Scottish, and served with them in the early days of the war, being thus entitled to the ‘Mons’ ribbon and medal for 1914.
