The Dublin University Officers Training Corps was founded in 1910, shortly before many staff and students departed to fight in the First World War. The OTC also took an active role in the defence of Trinity College and the surrounding community during the events of Easter week 1916. Just as the start of the First World War had heralded a dramatic drop in student intake, the end of the war resulted in an influx of ex-servicement students, and raised the question of the commemoration of those staff and students who never made it back.
Exhibited at the second Glucksman Memorial Symposium on June 13th 2007
