Hi Marco

134th Field Ambulance was with 39th Division throughout the war. 39th Div took part in the Battle of the Ancre 13th and 14th November 1916. 17th Sherwoods, one of the infantry battalions in 39th Div, entrained at Candas on 17/11/16 for north of St Omer, 16th RB also went there, so it looks like the Division was put into reserve, but not behind the Somme front.

SDGW gives Michael Joseph, born Cork, enlisted Dublin, residence Rathgar, and "Died".

Puchevilliers was the site of 3rd and 44th CCSs during the Battle of the Somme.

From the above information, it could well be that Mullins was injured (in an accident?) or was ill before 39th Div left the area, and sent back to one of the CCSs. 39th Div moved north and Mullins was left behind, where he unfortunately died.
