GREEN – In the Scottish Military Hospital, Edinburgh, Pte. Maurice Vincent Pemblot Green, of the Royal Fusiliers, son of Mr. and Mrs. Christie Green, formerly of Farnhill.

23 March 1917


Deep regret was felt in Farnhill on Thursday afternoon last when it was made known that Private Maurice Vincent Pimblot Green, only son of Dr. and Mrs. Christie Green of Coventry, formerly of Farnhill had died in the 2nd Scottish Military Hospital, Edinburgh, from septic poisoning. Private Green was 21 years of age and was in the Royal Fusiliers, joining up about 12 months ago. He had been in hospital about nine months and passed away on Thursday morning.

Prior to enlistment 12 months ago Private Green had offered himself in January 1915. He was regarded as unfit by his doctor, and was finally rejected. He was employed as a clerk at the United Counties Bank Ltd., Leamington, where he was held in high esteem. During his long illness in hospital hopes were entertained of his recovery, and quite recently he expressed a desire to be allowed to come to Farnhill believing the fresh air from the moors, which he loved so well in his boyhood, would make him strong again. The deceased was a very gifted musician, often taking service for love of the work. His death is deeply regretted and much sympathy is felt for Dr. and Mrs. Green in their great loss. The funeral took place at Coventry on Monday last.

      My uncle did not complete training – died from bronchitis- – in Florence Nightingale Hospital in Scotland. His parents were Dr Christie Green (music) and Clara Elizabeth Pimblot.
