Family Information

Even after extensive research Patrick’s parents cannot be found but we do know that he married Lottie Allen Bristow in the first quarter of 1917 in Battle, Sussex. He called himself John and he seems to have gone by this name more often than Patrick.

 Patrick died of cancer in the Italian Military Hospital in London.  He was a Roman Catholic and he was buried on 13th September 1917.   His coffin measured 6’ 6” x 1’9” and seems to have been made of Abura wood. His obituary appeared in the Bexhill Observer dated 15th September 1917.

First World War Experience

Patrick enlisted on 14th October 1914 but nothing else can be found of his war service. He was awarded the Victory Medal, the British War Medal, and the 14 Star.
