|FREE STATE OFFICERS DISMISSED.|
| The Dublin Gazette last night announced
that the commissions of Major William Stapleton and Major Patrick L. Aherne have been cancelled, and that
these officers have been dismissed from the National Army as from January 3.
The Free State Army authorities announced on December 29 the dismissal of 25 non-commissioned officers and 16 men suspected of association with an ex-officers' movement to subject the Government to unconstitutional pressure. It was then added that two majors had been suspended, and had been invited to show cause why their commissions should not be cancelled.
