Additional text from David Unwin

" My father told me granddad was gassed and wounded.  I have no knowledge of where or when.  I was also told he was on the Somme but do not know when.  I never met him even though he died in 1957 when I was nine.  He and my grandmother divorced sometime before 1946.  My father also told me his death was probably due to him being gassed.
