ANZAC of interest: General Sir Alexander Godley was an English-born, Irish, British Army officer who commanded the New Zealand Expeditionary Force during the First World War.  As such he commanded the New Zealand Division as part of ANZAC at Gallipoli and then II ANZAC on the Western Front.  He was second in seniority only to British Army General Sir William Birdwood, who commanded ANZAC at Gallipoli and I ANZAC on the Western Front. (I am hoping to regularly post ANZACs of interest on G2G).

Very interesting, thanks Alexander. I added him to Irish Military Diaspora Australia 

If you come across anymore ANZACs with Irish ancestry, let me know. or if you would like, you can add them to the page.

Not Australia, Richard. He would need to be New Zealand.
