Private 2775 Charles Lucas
Pte Lucas was a General Labourer when he enlisted in 4th Bttn on 25/8/1914.  The original medical notes a Mitral condition, but not sufficient to cause rejection. He previously served 6 years in 5th Bttn.  Charles was posted to 4th Bttn on his day of enlistment, but he may not have joined the Bttn, as he is identified as 3rd Bttn on 11/11/1914. He was recommended for discharge on 1/2/1915.
Discharged inefficient from 3rd Bttn on 20/2/1916, the cause is not confirmed in the Pension Record and there is no reference to aggravation, or not.
Charles died in Salford Union Infirmary, Pendleton on 20/9/1916, from Cardiac Disease - noted as aggravated by service. Reg SalfordQ3 1916 8d/50. Aged 38.
Widow Mary Ann and 4 children received a pension award at 27 Peabody St, Pendleton, later 10 Dickens St, Salford and moving to 18 W Charles St.

We need to see if there is a headstone on Charles Lucas' grave in Weaste and review the condition of any inscription. As this is a common plot, it's likely there is no headstone, so Charles will have a new headstone if we can gain family consent, or he will be added to the Special Memorial - which will probably require a new addendum panel. Possible contact with family members.
