    23411 John Clarke of 3rd Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, he was initially 12th Battalion and was posted to the 9th Battalion, part of the 36th Ulster Division, in France late 1916 - he was listed as wounded late 1917 and again early 1918 - he passed away in Oswestry Military Hospital 20/11/18 - I'm not sure if this was from his wounds suffered earlier in the year - a reserve Battalion of the Inniskillings was based in Oswestry at the time so its possible he had recovered or was recovering and something else happened to him to cause his death.

    During his time with the 12th Battalion they were involved in quelling the Easter Rising so he may have been involved in this action
