albertsnr discharge certificate

On 28 March 1919, Geoffrey’s paternal grandfather Albert was discharged from the Army Medical Corps “on account of illness contracted on active service.”

This was from mustard gas used by the Germans on the Western Front which affected him the rest of his life. He was just 20 years 3 months old at the time. When he enlisted in 1915 he was 16 and went to the Gallipoli campaign.
