|Title||Papers relating to Lillie Sarvent's application for a War Pension after the death of her husband in 1927|
|Notes||Papers appertaining to Lillie Sarvents' attempts to get a war pension. George was gassed in the first world war, and died in 1927. The Ministry of Pensions decided that his death was not connected to his service in the Great war.|
During the First World War George was a Lance Bombardier (or Bombardier depending on which document you refer to) No. 120790, 244S. Battery, Royal Garrison Artillery. He was gassed and admitted to Ward F3, No.12 General Hospital, Rouen on July 22, 1917.
Some time after George died July 9, 1927 Lillie tried to get a war pension. As George was not in receipt of a disablement pension or allowance under the Royal Warrant at the time of his death Lillie was not eligible for the grant of a pension. The Ministry could not regard George's death as being connected with his service during the Great War.
George died aged 46 from 1a) Plurisy with effusion b) Pneumonicis. This was often attributed, by those who knew him, to being gassed in the war.
