Mark Hone Posted 19 April , 2016 Share Posted 19 April , 2016 This old boy of Bury Grammar School (and Stockport Grammar) died in Mesopotamia in June 1916. I knew that he had died of natural causes but had presumed that it would have been from something like dysentry. However, a stark note beneath his photograph in the ' Bury Guardian' records 'died of sunstroke'. I know that it can be very unpleasant but how common was death from this cause? Am I right in thinking that it would be termed 'heatstroke ' or ' heat exhaustion' these days? Thank you as always for any assistance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
