FMP have a admission book for 18GH. 
There was a H Pursglove aged 23 admitted 23/6/18. Sgt. 13767 11 East Surrey. Influenza. Is this a case of bad admin. Says 4  years service. 33 months in theatre. This does not fit with his medal index card that indicates overseas vice only after start of 1916. 
The 11 East Surrey’s never left the UK.
