Thomas Herbert Guy Edwards, Sapper 84426 Royal Engineers. Carpenter who enlisted 1915. Discharged unfit July 1917. Deafness in both ears. “This is another glaring case of a man being passed with long standing disease of his ears. States Dr did not speak to him when he examined him on enlistment. Permanent.
