I can see  only 1 entry in the effects for Shepherd but it's very odd - there's clearly been some errors in the calculation as it was initially refused and then an error adjustment made. It also shows that Thomas Henry Shepherd served as Henry Shepherd.

 

This is the second man on the death cert - noted as died in action (must be the Easter rising). It's not the first dodgy record from the Easter Rising casualties.

His service number seems to date from around March/April 1916 (#16176 was issued 8 April 16) but his war gratuity indicates service longer service so he should have an earlier number.

Thank you Craig, sorry for not replying sooner. It is not an easy one. Thanks for all your help.

 This other lad is unfindable, can you help please? Died on the last day that would make him acceptable to I.F.C.P.image.png.d679abf9be5f9fedf9f945ed50ad898d.png

There is a second WFA card under R365694 and William. TB and otitis media both  "agg"

https://www.fold3.com/image/645045831

Address is given as 3 Eyre St, Galway

Think it says discharged 30/5/19.

Had O.M as a child - hence a bit mutt and jeff. Or selective hearing as most people call it!

Name, date of discharge and address are correct, Reverse of card says died 7/2/1921. Disability Myalgia "Due".

Looking for any other details

Medal records show 1 RMF. Medals returned 1923. Pair only

Age on discharge 25 y 307 d. SWB roll.

No service papers it seems.

Sorry Craig, Beatson cannot go forward without a death cert. I would not know where to start.

'Would not qualify as Mercantile Marine whose death not due to enemy action'. It was worth a shot, but he will be remembered with the Irishmen anyway,

Can you help tie this all together please? He is listed as a chief writer on HMS Colleen. So I wonder if he was discharged with TB? Thank you all very much in advance.
