He was alive until at least 1924, based on the Pension Ledgers.

Great research, George, would there be any chance of a link for Rumley for Terry please?

I don't think that is our Patrick Leahy, the death cert is certain he died, but thank you very much for trying Craig!

Kind regards.

 Tom.

Checking on the Ancestry post it certainly looks like lungs. Seems very unlikely but I'm not an MD!

Just been reading.

"Cirrhosis of the lung" was in fact used as a descriptive term in the olden days as an umbrella term for many lung diseases including interstitial fibrosis. Escpecially in the days before X-rays were widespread or understood. Even at the time, the use of the term wasn't encouraged or (in some instances ) believed. Handy I suppose if someone died of some bizarre lung condition (not usually TB), when you needed to put something down on the DC!

So it is a kind of fibrosis of the lung

Yes

Yes-well done indeed. 

I picture lots of little dark rooms with bright flickering screens and hunched shoulders of 'older' men.

 Yes.

Radiology is a pretty weird specialty really.

Thanks guys, but he will not qualify. Terry says it says he was discharged in 1910. I have to admit it looked like 1918 to me, but such is life.

 Thanks again for all your help.

Kind regards.

 Tom.

 

 

Tom,

 

It says he died aged 20 in 1918 so he would only have been 11/12 in 1910?

Sorry Steve, the 1910 was for Rumley, not Sanders.

Kind regards.

His Effects records shows died Youghal Mil. Hosp. but gives DoD as 4/7/18
