More about James Gauld

Private James Gauld died of wounds on 22nd October 1918 and is interred in Etaples Military Cemetery, Pas de Calais. The area around Etaples was remote from the main battle and trench areas so was used extensively as a ‘medical’ area with a number of Field and Static hospitals located in and around the area. Many of those buried in this cemetery succumbed in those hospitals.
