He looks the right man. Nothing of import on card apart from mother is Maria - address Castlebar. This leads me to suspect he was actually born 1899-1900. Think he was previously 35108 CRs. 35108 was discharged 19/10/20. No cause given on card. 35108 card shows a cancellation of award due to death dated April 1921. Address on this second card is Castle Brough - probably a mis-spelling of Castlebar.

Tom,

Re. post #2315, the Royal Engineer - if it's any interest a 39xxxx start to a 6-figure RE number is usually found with men of the Royal Anglesey RE (Special Reserve).  They were based at Kingsbridge Camp, Beaumaris, Anglesey, and sent five formed companies to the war, plus individuals as reinforcements to wherever needed.  At the start of the war they were told to add 39 to their existing 4-figure numbers.  The RARE drew its personnel from a very wide area.

 

Member Rogin is the authority I usually turn to in matters respecting this unit.

Thank you Bob, if you are confused what chance have we all got?

Good man mark, I appreciate it. I agree it is misspelled. I will get digging, fingers crossed!

 

Than you Clive, every day is a learning day, thank you for that.

Kind regards.

 Tom.

Nope I think I am wrong, Mark says his date of discharge is the same as the above sheet, but his reference shows the date of death on it also.

I have found that Henry Graham's father was Scottish and mother Irish though-if my trail is correct through Census and marriage

Slow off the marks today. Unfortunately, can find nothing so far to show Henry/Harry Graham was discharged with VDH. Still looking...

Horan is 11301 CRs. Reverse of WFA card says died on 8/3/21 and address is in Derrycooldrim. The card merely says debility attributable without specifying what. 

Discharged 25/11/18. Born 1898.
