Other Information:

George enlisted on 23rd September 1914. He was 28 years and 5 months old and a male nurse by trade. On 2nd July 1915, he was promoted to Lance Corporal, then on 26th September he embarked at Southampton with the 77th Field Ambulance - disembarking at Havre the next day, he entered the war in France on 27th September 1915. On 2nd February 1916, George was admitted into his unit, suffering with rheumation, then was discharged on the 16th. On 17th May he reverted back to the rank of Private, but was appointed acting Lance Corporal (unpaid) on 28th May. On 23rd September 1916, he was granted Good Conduct Badge, in the field. George was admitted into his unit again on 21st February 1917. Not knowing what was causing his problems he was discharged on 3rd March with a diagnosis of “PUO”. However, George continued to have a slight cough and on 11th December he was admitted again, this time he was diagnosed as having T.B. of the lung. He was evacuated to No 3 Casualty Clearing Station and then onto No 47 General Hospital at Treport. He was officially reverted back to the rank of Private on the 11th December 1917, then on the 19th was sent back to England via hospital ship. George was admitted into Barmondsey Military Hospital on 23rd February 1918, where it was decided that he was ‘no longer physically fit for war service’ and he was discharged on 25th March 1918. His condition was believed to have been brought about through war service, and possibly his exposure to gas. George was the son of Charles and Ruth Coxhill; and the husband of Lilian Lucy Coxhill of 72 Marlin Square, Abbots Langley.
