    Looks like it is Waterloo, Duhallow behind him and that this is John Longfield.

    Wait, I’m wrong, he’s from Waterloo, that’s Longueville House next door.

    The picture looks like it needs flipping - the conservatory should be on the right. See the OSI 25".

    If this is 1913/4 then John Percival Longfield shot by a sniper within a year or two in France and was buried at Bray-sur-Somme There are small biographies of him here and here with a photo and both mentioning that he was MFH for the Duhallow Hounds.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] I'm convinced by the fact that his biography mentions that his parents were Augustine and Florence Longfield which matches the census, as well as the MFH position that I already mentioned.

    Yes, unfortunately that's him, from the second Obit you mentioned Captain J. Percival Longfield M.V.O., 1st Batt. Norfolk Regiment, who was killed in action in France on September 30th last, was the only son of Lt. Colonel Longfield, of Waterloo, Mallow, County Cork. Captain Longfield retired from the Army in 1912, but immediately war broke out he rejoined his regiment. His death is a great loss to the Irish Hunting field, where he was well known as joint Master with Mr. R. G. Annesley of the Duhallow Hounds. Here in the marshland, past the battered bridge, One of a hundred grains untimely sown, Here, with his comrades of the hard-won ridge, He rests unknown. -Crewe

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/nlireland] Done! I think the car may be a Rolls Royce SIlver Ghost due to that bulging front seat; could well be wrong - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rolls-Royce_Silver_Ghost R.I.P. John Percival Longfield
