Casement's full story
Sir - There is much celebrating of Roger Casement as a hero for recruiting Irish prisoners of war (POWs) and getting arms for Ireland.
The full story should be told and the full context should be given; Britain was fighting for democracy and human rights. It had blockaded Germany and could read its code.
Casement recruited the POWs and as it was impossible to get them to Ireland, Casement got them to sign on to fight for Turkey. Maurice Meade of Limerick and about 40 others fought with the Turks.
