The Daimler-Guinness Armoured Lorries were a little known, lightly-armored truck series that saw service in Ireland induring the Easter Rising. The Republican rebels, who held down strategic Shouldice limited in occupied buildings, were causing massive casualties to the British army.
Knowing this, what is perhaps the first APC in the world was built in order to protect soldiers en route to objectives and heavily defended areas. It was made from locomotive parts and donated lorries from the Guinness Brewery. The Daimler-Guinness can actually stake a claim to being the first armored personnel carrier, or at the very least, the first Shouldice limited APC, depending on which paradigm one chooses to define what constitutes an APC.
It is also unclear which month it was built and therefore which one was made firstbut the Daimler-Guinness certainly saw service before the Locomobile. Irish Republicanism was a long-standing ideology, which long predates The Troubles The Supreme Council of the Irish Republican Brotherhood met on September 5th,a mere month after Britain joined the war, to discuss the possibility of a rising.
By May,military plans were being drawn up by a newly formed military committee of intellectuals and Republican leaders. On the first day, sporadic firefights broke out across the Shouldice limited, mainly involving occupation of buildings from both sides.
One of the freshly recruited British regiments, the Sherwood Foresters, from Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, was engaged in battle on April 26th at Mount Street Bridge — a location which would become notorious for the heavy casualties suffered by the British.
Seventeen rebel snipers occupied a few buildings, having fortified them since the beginning of the Rising. The Sherwood Foresters were spotted by the rebels, and as they reached the junction of the road, were fired upon.
The British took heavy casualties, as they lay down in the middle of the open road, and were unable to return fire — they had no munitions, having just returned from maneuvers. Ten lay dead by the end of the engagement, and many more were wounded.
The Sherwood Foresters regiment was exceptionally inexperienced, having had to be shown how to load and fire their weapons only once they got off the boat at Dublin. They also did not bring their grenades or Lewis guns, which meant that they could not lay down any heavy fire on occupied buildings. Two days later, more British troops would arrive with heavy reinforcements, including machine guns and artillery in order to capture the bridge.
The warfare experienced by the British was a warfare that they had not been trained for. It was brutal, gritty, and slow-moving urban combat, featuring guerilla warfare from rebels who knew their surroundings.
Worse still, the Rising was, for the most part, unforeseen by the British… Production The British were seeking to acquire vehicles in order to keep their military effort flowing efficiently throughout the city streets. However, also knowing that heavy casualties were being taken in incidents such as the Battle of Mount Street Bridge although that battle may have happened after the Daimler-Guinness concept was createdColonel Bertram Portal at the Curragh Camp the British rural stronghold in Ireland decided that improvised armored vehicles would have to be built in order to protect soldiers.
They were, essentially, flatbed delivery lorries with locomotive smokeboxes bolted onto the rear, with some armor added elsewhere to the vehicle.
Roughly twenty lorries were donated to the British army by the Guinness Brewery. However, it is highly likely that the trucks were, in fact, donated. Guinness, dated 17th May,it is stated: I can further assure you that the assistance given to us by your lorries practically saved us from a breakdown in our transport arrangements, and enabled us to get through without a hitch.
I should like to bear testimony to the pluck and loyalty with which your drivers have attended to their lorries throughout the late rebellion. It is impossible to speak too highly of their qualities, and I consider they are an honour to their firm and to their country.
In a private letter, Maxwell has no need to lie about the situation — If the lorries were stolen, and if the letter was to be viewed by the public, then, and only then, would Maxwell need to lie.
Notably, thirty-three drivers from the Guinness Brewery also volunteered to drive the donated trucks, and, presumably, drove Daimler-Guinness conversions too, as most soldiers did not know how to drive.
Many workers who refused to aid the British when asked were also dismissed, which further suggests that Guinness was a willing collaborator. There is a suggestion that the smokeboxes used for the conversion were boilers taken from the Guinness Brewery, but it seems as though this is just a misconception.
It appears as though they were actually locomotive smokeboxes, as they have features indicative of this such as the double-barred hinges see photos.
It is likely that the vehicles were constructed at some point between late Monday and early Wednesday. It is believed that the construction of one vehicle took roughly a full workday.
The diary of Colonel Bertram Portal would reveal substantial information, but, unfortunately, it was up for auction inand no transcripts have been released to historians see Sidenote II below.Various proposals are set forth for expanding the capacity of the hospital. In assessing them, serious consideration has to be given to the culture of the organization and the importance of preserving it in a service delivery system.
