19033 Michael George McGirr
1st July 1916
I was unable to find much at all about Michael.
His place of birth is given as Rantam N.B. ,but not the date it occurred on. I believe the N.B. stands for New Brunswick in Canada,but have been unable to find a the place name of Rantam.
He enlisted in Culmstock. Devon(but did not appear on any census records for that area) and his date of disembarkation into France was on 21/12/1915.
He was killed in action on 01/07/1916.
He was awarded the 1914-1915 Star,
the 1914-1918 British War and Allied Victory medals.
The officer in charge requested disposal of medals on 02/02/1922. Further requests were made on 31/03/1922 and 28/04/1922 as no next of kin could be traced.
