The events that surrounded the 2nd Battalion's actions at the Curragh in March 1914, were to a great extent, unknown to the 1st Battalion; then stationed in Egypt.
Rumours in the international press had hinted of a 'Mutiny in Ireland' yet precise details were not offered.
When the May 1914 edition of the Suffolk Regimental Gazette found its way to Khartoum, they were still none the wiser, but the Gazette's Editor sought to assure all of it's readers that despite the fact that the Battalion were still passing through a difficult time, that their one priority above all else, was to uphold the very highest traditions of the Suffolk Regiment, above all personal considerations and sentiments.
