Surely you must be related to the late John McGowan of Australia? I might have Patrick's war record in my files. As to Malachy, I visited his grave twice, once in a snowstorm, then in a heat wave. He had no kids so the other Malachy was named after him. Killed in action, 7 Apr 1915 near Neuve Chappelle.
