1921 May 14. He was involved in the Coolbaleen Ambush while motoring in the car driven by District Inspector Biggs. Lieutenant Trengrouse managed to escape from the vehicle and ran off down the road. He must have realised that his actions would be criticised, and it is probably no coincidence that he resigned 2 weeks afterwards.
At the inquiry he stated that he was in Newport with District lnspector Biggs and met the other three. They all went to a house for tea at 4 o'clock in District lnspector Biggs private car. They left at 7 o'clock, Captain Biggs being driving with Miss Barrington next him. [Lt Trengrouse] and the other two were seated behind. All went well until they got to Coolbaleen bridge. They had just got over the bridge and were at the bottom of the slope when twenty five to thirty shots rang out from both sides of the road on a level with the car.
