Un-named Suicide in Winters's Office on 17 May 1921

Sturgis in his diary says that there was "another" suicide in Winter's Office on this date. The problem is to find the name. I can see possibilities

If one looks at CWGC death for that day, these are they

BEVAN E 731393 241ST BTY NORTH MIDLAND BDE 17/05/1921 ROYAL FIELD ARTILLERY CWGC
HUNTER WC 7222 - 17/05/1921 KING'S SHROPSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY CWGC
MURRAY P 3009 2ND/5TH BN 17/05/1921 WEST YORKSHIRE REGIMENT (PRINCE OF WALES'S OWN) CWGC
PERCIVAL M 3645255 1ST BN 17/05/1921 KING'S OWN (ROYAL LANCASTER REGIMENT) not him -details
ROSS E 275724 ATTD GHQ 17/05/1921 ROYAL FIELD ARTILLERY buried Bagdhad
SHUCK G 5095639 DEPOT 17/05/1921 ROYAL WARWICKSHIRE REGIMENT CWGC
WALSH JJ 18902 - 17/05/1921 ROYAL FIELD ARTILLERY CWGC
WILLIAMS E PO/15586 8TH RM BN RN DIV 17/05/1921 ROYAL MARINE LIGHT INFANTRY not him-details

So that reduces to 5 possible men in CWGC graves

Walsh JJ The most likely to me. But I cannot get enough on him - no MIC, and if he was born in Liverpool, what is his connection with Exeter. His service number in RFA does not give his MIC but a man called McEwan. However his death is registered in Exeter

Walsh, Bevan, Hunter, Murray, Shuck all appear to have deaths registered in England, and not in Ireland

It appears that all the CWGC men are all deaths in England and can be ruled out as suicide in Dublin.

Another approach would be to look at the men who I know were in Winters Office, but that list is not complete by any means

 

British soldiers died in Ireland
