This autograph book belonged to Sean Malone, High Street, Westport, a Prisoner of War in Tintown No 2, The Curragh Camp. Inscription read as follows:

Baile An Staig,
Pobal 9

No wave on the great ocean of time
When once it had passed us can be re
Called. All we can do is wait for
The new form and motion of the next
And launch upon it to try, in the
Manner our best judgement will suggest
Our strength and our skill.
