“Important that identity of prisoner captured on 21st should be published”

From NATHAN to BIRRELL 26th April

Lord Lieutenant considers it most important that identity of prisoner captured on 21st should be published in Ireland and I am informed that it would be of greatest value to us if this were known at once in America. If War Office will agree please sanction our publishing in Ireland and if possible arrange for publication in America.
