John G. Lawrence was the first warrant officer to be awarded the Military Cross. He died in Dar es Salaam Feb. 15, 1918 of pneumonia, following malaria, when assigned to the 2nd Bn. West India Regiment. He is buried in Dar es Salaam War Cemetary. I believe Elizabeth had a severe breakdown at this time, and never fully recovered until her death in 1966.
Does the White Hart in Malden still exist. If it does I must make a point of visiting sometime.
