Looks like it reads 'Michael Bracken' but I can't see anything obvious Tom - I wonder, based on his age, if he was actually serving at the time of death.

Do either of these two have anything to do with Murray? Guessing the surname could be wrong.

Strange that all 3 soldiers who died that day  and commemorated by CWGC in Ireland were called John.

Neither of these two have their ages documented.

 

MEADE Private 1651 JOHN Saturday, August 21, 1915 COBH OLD CHURCH CEMETERY B. 18. 23. View record Royal Munster Fusiliers United Kingdom
WILSON Rifleman 6996 JOHN Saturday, August 21, 1915 BUTTEVANT (ST. MARY'S) CATHOLIC CEMETERY Near North boundary. View record Royal Irish Rifles United Kingdom

 

(The other is John Kenealy aged 18)

Edit: I see the answeer is 'No'.

Well done Little Bob.

Thank you Dai, sorry, but Bob wins this one. Only one day in the difference date of death. I reckon that what threw us off.

Kind regards.

Tom,

If he had suffered from Phthisis Pulmonalis ( I presume Pulmonary TB) for 'about 5 years', I find it surprising that he  was passed fit  at enlistment (assuming this was sometime from 17/1/1910 onwards), let alone serving at any time between 4/8/1914 and 17/1/1915.

Point taken Dai, and well made too! Maybe these Sextons are hard hard men!

Thank you.

What do you think is this mans age?

I will only reply if someone gets it right.

Good luck!!
