While looking through the list of staff members for the British Linen Bank who survived the war, I came across the above name. In looking up his military details I saw he had died in 1921.

He was awarded a SilverWar Badge and was discharged in 1917. Pension Index Cards exist which indicate his death was cause by Vascular Disease of the heart, and that it had been aggravated by his military service.

Given that the pension card advises his death was aggravated by his service, is there enough evidence to put him forward asa non-comm?

I have death certificate and other supporting paperwork if someone would like to forward it to IFCP.
