In total she received 5 5s 6d.
The list says he died "on or since" the above date & that "death is presumed" meaning his body was never recovered.

If you'd like to know where he was, he was on the Ypres Salient N. of Frezenberg Belgium. his Batt. were along the highlighted (blue) lines. I believe he was in the attacking party on the 16th. taking Borry farm.
All of this area had been held by the Germans for the past 3 years that's why a lot of this is in German. This was of course the battle we know as Passchendaele.
