I think I have got the hang of 1 and 2. He was captured at Fresnoy on 21 March 1918. He died of a lung infection (influenza?) at Bethel (where he is buried) on 1 August 1918.

 

The third entry relates to an unknown F Kirkland. I can't make anything of what appears on the right hand side. Can anyone help please?

1 & 2 are OK.

3. Rank and Unit unknown, no further information, died, buried 23-25.3.1918 between Queant and Buisey. Reported by S.D.Z.N ( a new one on me but I think it is Section S of the ZNB - the Central Information Office in Berlin) on 5.2.1919. ( on ID Disc - C.E.N.D.  76200).

Thank you.

 

That's excellent.  I might look and see if Arthur George was a relative of Frank Kirkland.
