Frank Titus Gooding, 880132. Corporal RFA

My grandfather joined the T.A in Romford in about 1909. His TA unit went to war but he remained in Essex as a trainer. He eventually was involved in the battle of Passendale where I believe mustard gas was first used. He finished the war in hospital because of the gas and was eventually discharged. I have input his records on the site. but he doesn't seem to be remembered by anyone even though I thought he had. I lived with him so I know the effects of the gas where life long.
