Norman Debuffe

Curtis

1893

Chepstow, Monmouthshire

25th October 1918

It seems likely that Norman died from wounds received in the Courtai now known as Kortrijk where he is buried. More specifically that Norman died alongside three other members of the 140th Field Ambulance RAMC who are buried along side him. One of them Private Albert Edward Waldon was reported locally that he was a stretcher bearer and that he had died from the effects of gas - given their date of death and grave site, it seems more than likely Norman also died from the effects of gas received in the line of their work as stretcher bearers.
