The Labour Corps number means he was initially at least in 81 Company which was formed from the 16th Infantry Labour Compant, King's Liverpool.

His Liverpool number is similar to those of men who were in King's ILC Companies so I think he may have been enlisted into an ILC.

He may well have been gassed as both his ILC Company and 81 Company were used in the forward areas within the range of German guns. There was certinly an incident in July 1917 when 9 of the Company were killed or died of wounds over a two day period. Oncidents of this kind were often due to shelling and/or gas attacks.
