About the Roger Casement Papers

The Boehm/Casement Papers consist largely of letters from Roger Casement to Captain Hans Boehm, during Casement's stay in Germany in 1915, as well as some associated material (photographs, medals) relating to his first contact with the German authorities in November and December 1914 and the formation of the Irish Brigade in 1915.

The collection is small and covers only a short period of Casement's life. However, it illustrates very well his feelings during this period, the knowledge and acceptance of the fact that he was committing treason. It also shows his increasing disillusionment with the project and the German authorities. There is also some material on the brigade and possibly the original of the Findlay letter [P127/1].
