Now this is one I definitely cannot find. Can you help please? It looks like the Irish Guards and a Dublin man.

Pension Ledger has a #4417 Irish Guards discharged May 1915 and died 18 Oct 1919.


Disability was TB, Ulcer and GSW but the 'attrib/aggravated' entry has not been completed.

 

He's already on CWGC.

Haven't looked for any records Tom, but I think the cause of death reads "Dermatitis Enfoliativa (sic) Acuta ,14 days, Acute dilatation of the heart & Syncope , 2 hours".

I think it should be Exfoliativa rather than Enfoliata.

A nasty skin disease we would now call Erythroderma, the badly damaged skin letting in nasty infections, sometimes fatal.

 

On reading a bit more about it,  I see it causes oedema and heart failure, so  that all fits the picture:

Can't find nothing else other than Navy Lists for 1916, 1917 I'm afraid

Family tree on Ancestry has death correct but no sources attached

Dermatology's a doddle.

They invented long Latin words for conditions to impress folk and obscure the fact they couldn't actually treat any of them.

Thank you guy so much, I was was going to skip this man but though I would see if you would be able to find him. You had so little to go on and you all came up trumps.

Thanks again Dyfed, George and Horatio very much indeed. If i could promote you I'd make ye all Corporals!

Kindest regards.

 Tom.

Ireland, Casualties of World War I, 1914-1922

George I reckon that is your best find. Try as I might I could not find him, but I never thought that Ireland's Memorials Records would have him listed. Thanks again for a great bit of research.

 Kind regards.

Can't find anything on Albert Hughes, and as for VADs, I think member Jim Strawbridge might be the man to ask.
