RTE have a podcast here on this commander of the infamous Black & Tans
Thanks for the link slowburner. I don't know what to make of that documentary style but Tudor is of interest. Here is some info from a military collector in history ireland that includes comments by respected authors:
Tudors exile leaves plenty of questions over his life. It would be good to look at his role in Ireland from a neutral point of view, i.e. was he simply fulfilling what he saw as his duties, a 'dirty job' ?
There is some further information regarding the resignation of General Crozier in the Times reporting of the disagreement with Tudor:
The record of the commons shows the following with questions being openly asked about Tudor:
It continues over and back for some time with dissatisfaction expressed at the answers received:
It all suggests that there was open dissent against Tudor at the time which is interesting. If it had followed years later it could be expected but it shows that the actions undertaken in Ireland were being widely reported.

A further development of the Trim case and the shooting of two unarmed prisoners in Drumcondra was that Tudor managed to have 19 of the 26 cadets reinstated.
The case against three cadets implicated in the Drumcondra shooting, was dismissed due to 'lack of evidence'.
Tudor prevented Crozier from investigating any further misdeeds by removing his power of dismissal in November 1920.
Crozier resigned his commission not long after on the 25th of February, 1921.
Mrs. Asquith is reputed to have said to Tudor:
'They tell me you are as much a murderer as any of them, only you like things done in an orderly manner and at Trim, they were disorderly.'
Whatever about Tudor stating his belief that he had been given a dirty job - he certainly seems to have carried it out to the best of his ability.
