A great find thank you Bob!! And a very good morning to you too. I have not found anything on FMP for this man and the Effects register confirms it is him. You are a gentleman.

Kind regards.

 Tom.

Good man Dyfed, Thank you. We are thinking on the same lines. I was pursuing this lad but I cannot find his sister Annie, still looking though!

Just keeping you all up to date. 1920 is a nightmare. Lots of possibles but no records. How did they do that? Beats me I'll tell ya.

Kind regards.

Thank you for trying anyway Bob. They all seem the same, Bob, all unfindable. Very frustrating.

re Patrick Kelliher, of Kilrush, aged 16.

 

Doesn't progress things but I note there's a Patrick Kelleher, born 1904 to John and Katie of Pound St, Kilrush. 1911 Census shows him at home. In 1915 he is up before the beak for stealing apples but as he's underage it's his father who stands guarantor. Could be him but I find nothing more. Perhaps he joined the Army young to get out of trouble ?

3970 died 14/1/15 @ Givenchy

The man below him in the medal rolls 9819 seems a more likely possibility. WFA card suggest died early 1920s.

2 RMF 1914 Star trio man

Served 7/6/12 to 31/10/15 - discharged due to wounds

FWR transcribed record for SWB says

"Particulars furnished: Cork, 10/01/1917. Badges and certificates issued: Cork, 09/02/1917. Army Form B 179 Medical Report on an Invalid."

I believe that above death certificate is Cork. Correct?

No service docs I can find.

Off topic, but you maybe interested in this footage from the National Film Board of Canada. Taken at Etaples following an air raid overnight on 18/19 May 1918. Looks like it could be the same cemetery. The bodies in the coffins are nurses killed in the air raid. The burial at the end is staged for the camera

A member of my rowing club was wounded in the raid, evacuated and died of his injuries a couple of weeks later in Birmingham

Not sure we are going to get much further with Linehan. No service papers for 9819. We know from WFA card that his wife Margaret was born Feb 1891. Trawled through marriage records and suspect she was born in Cork and was Margaret nee Kiely. If correct they married in 1915 but cannot locate any original marriage doc that might help. So still all very circumstantial

Thank you Mark and George. It seems like when 1920 came along they just pulled down the shutters on records. Still I managed to get a few over the line but it was unbelievably difficult. 

Keep up the good work and thanks again for all the help.

This could be an interesting one. Her brother, Cedric Franklin Paul was KIA in 1917. Her father was an Army Chaplain. Her brother Rollo Croft Paul died in 1903. Anything you can add about her would be very much appreciated.
