JOHN THOMAS HEALEY
Remembered with honour Vlamertinghe Military Cemetery: Plot III, Row A, Grave 2,
He enlisted at Maidstone, Kent, and was formerly Private 9607 Duke of Cornwall’s Light Infantry. He was entitled to the Victory, British War and 1914-15 Star medals, his qualifying date being 18 January 1915; Mr J HEALEY applied for the Star medal in respect of the late T HEALEY 1 August 1920. He died of gas poisoning received in action. Unfortunately, Thomas’ Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
