More about Peter Balbirnie

There is no P. Balbirnie 240672, Royal Engineers listed on either C.W.G.C. or S.D.G.W. Peter’s death is recorded as Cardiac Disease (Mitral & Aortic) jaundice, it would appear that his death was not deemed to have been caused by his war service, hence no record of him on C.W.G.C.
