Joseph Atkinson is a new case for commemoration, where 2 records confirm he had TB commencing on active service.  The service records indicate the TB was not attrib or agg by service, but commencing at Killingholme.  This should now meet the revised criteria.
Checking with IFCP before ordering the DC.
