His Storypoppy-1

Ernest was born in Islington in 1899. He appears on the 1911 Census living at 31 Ruston Street, Bow. He died in Cambridge Hospital, Aldershot, presumably whilst training, on 27 October 1917.Given that he does not have a Medal Index Card, it would appear he died before having the opportunity of going overseas, and obtaining a campaign medal.
