John Brennan attested for military service early in 1916.
The 3rd Battalion of the Loyal North Lancashire regiment was a Reserve Battalion and after mobilisation it was moved to Felixstowe as part of the Garrison protecting against the threat of German invasion. The Battalion remained in Felixstowe for the remainder of the war.
With this unit, Private Brennan probably remained in the UK for the duration of his service and therefore has no medal entitlement.
His service gratuity is recorded as being sent to his widow, Susannah, on 20th June 1917
