    No sign of Emmet in the casualty lists, his Wills Calender entry gives place of death as Halifax Sanitorium Shelf near Halifax. They never use punctuation in these calenders! Given his age he may not have been a serving member at the time of his death hence not on casualty lists.

    the others are all Died on active service, except for Hughes in Canada who will be KOAS.
