WFA cards give contradictory info. One says A/451996 died after discharge. Claimant mother N. Fitzgibbon. Shows correct DoD

https://www.fold3.com/image/1/645810393

The other has Bob's number with RAF crossed out and RASC stated. Same claimant but Norah. Died correct day Consumption. Died WS - whilst serving

https://www.fold3.com/image/1/645810553

See here that confirms RAF service. Mother Nora

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=gbm%2fair79%2f1141%2f00090&parentid=gbm%2fair79%2f17541

Shows previous service with RMF as 3/6089

All a little confusing

George

Looks circumstantially like it is him. It is noted on reverse of card that the award should be cancelled at the end of the quarter in which the man died. The note is dated 13/10/21. He was discharged for "mental deficiency". A claim from his widow was rejected on the grounds they had married since discharge

Mears:

Corisande's website describes the circumstances of his shooting in Killarney

https://www.cairogang.com/soldiers-killed/mears/mears.html

A newspaper report indicates a member of the hotel's staff, Hannah Carey, was also killed by a stray bullet in the incident

Still searching for Mayfield but absolutely no trace to date.

It is a team effort to be honest Mark, lots of thanks to all concerned. Its getting near the end lads and lassies, We are on the letter F on the last folder, which has the least amount of possible certs. 

 

Nora Fitzgibbon in Boherboy, Tralee.

Boherboy and Boherbee mean the same thing, the Yellow Road. Boherboy in the Census and Boherbee on the DC.

Poor Patrick Finnegan, he cannot qualify as he did not died from what he was discharged with. I would not have been able to say this without your help.

How about this South Dublin soldier please? I reckon he is George Fleming, but I could be wrong.

Fleming is 31126. Royal Irish Fusiliers. Discharged 27/2/19 for chronic bronchitis. Unfortunately WFA Card does not say if attributable or aggravated. Card gives DoD as 17/3/21. Another card shows wife was Margaret. Relevant Cards:

Sorry Mark, Bob,and Charlie, just going through all the posts. Desmond you can ignore, I clipped the wrong cert, sorry.

Well spotted with Flynn and Baker, thank you lads.

Below is all I can find on FMP for Fleming.

Just McKay now to concentrate on. I have passed on your urls and info and await his reply, probably not until the morning.

Excellent work lads and lassies in the face of adversity too!

Kind regards and thanks again!

Tom.
