Medal card of Grewing, Robert J Corps: Royal Field Artillery Regiment No


Was alive and received the Victory Medal at the end of the War.

No obituary found. Mention of elder brother's death found, and he left money to mental hospital. For someone to have been known and respected to write before WWI, and then to disappear from view after the war, one might suspect that suffered psychological trauma from service, and had no public presence. — billinghurst sDrewth 02:40, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
