Personal Data

After Edward's death his outstanding Army pay and allowances amounted to £4/11/9d (4 pounds, 11 shillings and and 9 pence); this was paid to his father, John, in October 1915. His War Gratuity amounted to £3/0/0d (3 pounds exactly), this was also paid to his father in June 1919. The value of the War Gratuity suggests that Edward enlisted in the 12 months prior to his death.
