Military have orders to fire at once at any man…believed to be an Irish Volunteer

Military have orders to fire at once at any man in uniform or in plain clothes who is carrying arms who is believed to be an Irish Volunteer or Sinn Feiner if he does not surrender. Should similar orders be issued to police?

Approved by Under Secretary 11.50am 26th April 1916
