    Does anybody know?

    This doesn't really answer your question

    But try this:-

    No. 30/1923: SECOND SCHEDULE

    No. 30/1923: CHAPTER III ADMINISTRATION

    Any wiser?

    The rumour of a medal being issued next year for the 100 year anniversary of the Irish Volunteers to all members of the DF appears to be true:

    True story.
    I was with the FCA in Galway ( 50ú Cath ) c 1955-60. There were stacks of Lee-Enfields 303 there, date stamps 1917 KG V .

    Great to shoot with and to drill with. Always assumed there were there since British times.

    While in the FCA was always impressed at how well the DF maintained all their equipment
