Royal Field Artillery (British Army)

Michael Mallon was born in Mullinahoe, County Tyrone. Prior to the war Michael Mallon was employed as a hammerman, presumably in the shipyard at Govan in Glasgow. He was living in Govan. Michael Mallon attempted to enlist several times but was turned down on being over age at least 45 years old. It seems then that he finally managed to enlist and served as Gunner Michael Mallon with the Royal Field / Garrison Artillery. A newspaper report from July 1916 records that a Private Michael Mallon of Ballinderry Bridge had been wounded, mostly likely at the Battle of the Somme.
