On 21st March, 1937, AB Walter A. Wykes of HMS Repulse, died in Gibraltar Military Hospital.
He was buried in North Front Cemetery, Gibraltar, number 9030 plot C. He was 28.
The cause of death was given as:
1). Habmatogemous suppurative nephritis #
2). Portal pyaemia #
At the funeral service, the
Chaplain of HMS Queen Elizabeth (ship my father was currently serving
with) officiated, with firing party, bearers, escort and band supplied
by the same ship's company.
# These relate, as far as I can tell, to a kidney disorder and the accompanying effects of it. (Andy - Webmaster).
