2 WFA cards re Sgt Charles Kelly. Sgt. Royal Engineers. Nok mother Sarah. Her adress is 1 Pembroke Place - she is aged 47 on the card

On card says 178116 the other 198116

Looks like she lost another son John Jospeh Kelly - Leinsters 10744. DoD 31/3/17.

Both relate to mother's claim and are short of discharge details.

edit -

There is a third one showing he was at same address and discharge date of 26/8/19. No cause details

However, as Bob has shown we know it from his SWB roll

Managed to shoot himself in the arm in Oct 1917

I think I understand you now George. Why am I posting death certs from 1920? There are some death certs for people who died not registered until the year after. I am sure there are more 1920 deaths to come that are registered in 1921. I have saved all my death certs by year of register.

Kiely has a shed load of service papers on Ancestry. Cannot find on FMP at the moment. He was demobilised in March 1919 rather than discharged unfit. Nothing of import on 2 WFA cards. Widow applied for a pension I think.

Michael Kelly

https://search.findmypast.co.uk/record?id=S2/GBM/MH106/MH106-1465/0015&parentid=GBM/MH106/P2/442995

shows he was in 4 Stationary Hospital for over a month early 1917. The sent to 32 Stationary hospital. So diagnosis is “Shell Shock W”. So probably indicates reason for discharge a few months later.

WFA cards do not help. Confirm his address.
