Tom’s health had been poor prior to enlisting, but he initially reported gaining weight and feeling better than before. Sadly he was admitted to hospital in Cambridge coughing blood. He was discharged, ‘No longer fit for military service’ in Feb 1916 and died in April 1916. The diagnosis was TB of the lungs.
He is buried in Hyde Park Cemetery, Doncaster.
This man has no Medal Index Card that I have found.
His Soldiers’ Effects record show he died in Femoy – maybe in the Military Hospital. His widow was Annie E – backtracking a man of this name married Annie E Brookfield in Doncaster in 1915.
Here is his record on Lives of the First World War:
No evidence of Medal Index Card (only men who served abroad were entitled to medals in WW1).
