- Newberry - Captain William Frederick Newberry, Courts Martial Officer

The conclusion is that it was not a particularly sucessful operation against British Intelligence. Of the 15 men who died as a result of the shootings, 6 were intelligence officers, 3 were civilians, 2 were courts martial officers, 3 were police officers, and one a normal staff officer.
It is difficult to know which were on "the list". The two Auxiliaries certainly were not, and I do not think that Smith or Montgomery were, they were just in the wrong place whern the gunmen arrived. Fitzgerald may have been a mistake, they may have been looking for a Col Fitzpatrick, and certainly he was not an intelligence officer. Wilde and MacCormack appear to have been Dublin Brigade addition to Collins original list. Then there are the two Courts Martial officers Baggallay and Newberry who may or may not have been added by Dublin Brigade.
