Thank you Dyfed, its a pity there are no medical details, so near and yet so far.

 

Thank you George, I dont think it could be McLoughlin as the ages are way out, but thank you for trying, and I did not know that Edgar Allum's wife was buried in baghdad-'wife Bridget buried in Baghdad, died 1917'

Gotcha!!

Kind regards.

Tom.

Two different men I think between FMP and Ancestry - birth places are different as is the forename . It's just coincidence they both held the number #6420 at some point.

 

George's man seems to be more likely the right one.

Now I understand what you were saying George, but this man was a serving soldier. So I would need a record that shows that. The one you posted was discharged,

I do apologise, I should have added that Laurence Ryans death was registered in Limerick.

Thanks you to Bob for pointing it out.

Terrific piece of sleuthing George, I would not have thought of the papers. So he was Motorised Transport which is part of the A.S.C. There are two possibilities. M/371948 and T4-253464. Checking them now.

Bummer, they did not work out.

I sent on your newspaper piece and his death cert to Terry. We have to move on I think.

Thanks again and well done a tasty bit of research.

 Kind regards.
