    I can confirm the location as shown in the video is Merrion Square, Dublin (and not Morrion Square). The St. John Ambulance Brigade in Ireland was founded in 1903 by Dr. John Lumsden (later K.B.E. ). The organisation became part of society and grew from to strength to strength. The Brigade became the most prominent first aid organisation in the country, as little or no services existed across Ireland. It was during the war they established the Irish War Hospital Supply Depot (later headquarters) on the square and remained here for almost 40 years. It was used for annual review, inspections and first aid competition training.
