Hello Bob,
Considering the time interval between your posting, and me replying, the speed of your answer is supersonic.

We are trying to re assemble an admissions ledger from the only source left, the alphabetic index. Fortunately, the information, tho sparse, has proved to be ideal for the project.
And, already, a pseudo format is beginning to take shape.

It will provide a link between the Hibernian boys and the Regiments of their fathers, a direct line to further research via the muster rolls.

Any information is welcome, as we are trying to add a tail piece to all those entered into the ledger.
If you trawl the net for DYRMS, or Duke of York's Royal Military School. there is a segment on the RHMS.
Thanks for your speedy response.

Hi I am also interested in trying to trace any info on my husband's grandfather William George Parkes B.1911 Dublin. He went to the military school after his father Private William Edward Parkes (GS/11948) 2nd Dragoons Royal Scots Greys, died in 1915 in a Yorkshire hospital, following battle injuries incurred in France, buried in York Cemetery. His mother was caled Florence Nee Hollinshead.

At the time of William George Parkes birth they were living at 27 Daniel Street, Dublin. Baptised at St Kevin Church, Dublin.

His mother Florence, went on to remarry so I have been told and William George Parkes was sent to a military school and transferred to Kent area when they merged (?) at a young age. Most grateful for any information, we don't know a great deal about this side of the family, as William George Parkes stayed over here and spent the rest of his life here in South West of England. Many thanks

i am also researching my family history and trying to get more information on my Great-Grandfather, Frederick William Clover, who was Headmaster at RHMS in 1911 according to the Irish Census. I have no records of him beyond this time. Can you help? He was also President of the Hockey and Cricket teams in 1910, 11

Hello Peter,
A long shot I know as your post was getting on for nine years ago ! I've just come across it as I'm trying to find out when my grandfather Frederick Jesse Gibney joined and how long he was there. I have his signing on papers for the Royal Field Artillery, aged 14 years and nine months dated 13th June 1892. As you probably know, one question on the document is ' have you lived away from your father for more than three years?' and the answer is given ' Yes, at the Royal Hiberian Military School'. Whilst my grandfather was born in Sussex, his father James William Gibney, also a soldier, was born in Ireland but died in 1880 aged thirty eight when Frederick was only three. If you can be of any help I'd be very grateful ! Many thanks, Geoff Collinge
