Two members of the Irish army, Pte Radley and Cpl Glanville, in 1929 who took part in the first blood transfusion in Cork.

According to the Examiner, Pte Radley’s blood was given to a woman during an operation in the Mercy Hospital, which was the first time it had happened in Cork. Cpl Glanville’s blood was kept as a back up. Both men were in the Army Medical Corps in Collins Barracks.
