|Notes||George Armitage Sarvent 1881-1927.|
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.
A document 'Protection Certificate and Certificate of Identity' was issued to George, stamped with the stamp of the Dispersal Hospital, East Leeds, dated March 22, 1919.This is stamped in Leeds, Morecombe and Stockport until April when a stamp has 'book issued' written on it. The 'address for pay' on this document is 22 Ayresome Terrace, Roundhay, Leeds. This document is also stamped 'sick and wounded'.
Some time after George died July 9, 1927 Lillie tried to get a war pension. The letter George wrote to Lillie from Hospital was stamped as being received by the Ministry of Pensions on October 11, 1927. Various documents returned to Lillie are stamped by the Ministry of Pensions on February 14, 1930, before being returned to Lillie. 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.
