Morning Tom,

I find these naval guys hard to research.

Can't help, other than to say he died of a very dense stroke of fairly sudden onset.

But you knew that already.

Thanks for trying anyway Dyfed!! I appreciate it very much.

 Good ould Bob sent me some critical info and with that information and knowing he is in folder3 I sent him along to Terry and await with bated breath his reply. Its a fifty fifty job.

Thanks again for all the help. 

Kindest regards.

 Tom.

Happy New Year Tom

I do not have the experience to know I'm sorry to say. Some more knowledgeable person will advise for sure.

The logic would seem to be to inform CWGC I suppose

Worth a try. However, I will use an example. Researched another Kiwi killed at Messines in 1917. The location was recorded. A makeshift   Cross erected. A comrade wrote to the family and described exactly where he and others buried him and several other men. After the war the cross was found still in place but no remains were found. 
The last record here seems to be dated March 1918 by a GRU. So one must suspect CWGC were aware but could not locate the remains.

Good morning lads and lassies. This guy is puzzling me. I reckon they are one and the same. Can you help please? Buckley does not have a MIC, but Ardick does, with the same number.

Thank you most sincerely everyone in advance.

 Tom.

Morning Tom

Both died 27/11

Shepherds Bush is in Hammersmith

Looking likely they are the same man-but how?

Fantastic, what a hit, thank you very much George. So it is a CWGC double entry. I'll pass it on to Terry.

 Thanks again George!

What would you do with this George? I cannot make head nor tail of it. Dated 13/12/1917.

Looks easy but nothing here is easy I am afraid.

 Thanking ye all in advance for any help you can give.

My FMP subscription doesn't stretch to knowing what it says though!

If it's the same as Ancestry doesn't add to the knowledge.

Thank you George. There is only one in there that fits. The others are all I.R.A. medal applications.

Below it looks like Ireland's Memorrial Records just copied it from the newspaper.
