    1) THIRLWELL Thomas Gordon 568454 - struggling with Thirlwell. Nothing on any family trees on ancestry.

    2) Airman GATES Edward Albert 346702

    For the Kent one, he was born in 1890, and had served in the R.A.S.C., Service No. T/29622. Died December 5th 1936 at Dymchurch.

    For the India one, FMP has the entry in the 'British India Office Deaths & Burials' list, which has the following:

    June 26th 1937 Albert Edward Gates, aged 35, 3590328 R.Q.M.S. 2nd Border Regt, death due to heatstroke.

    Not sure how helpful that is...
