so must re-enlist to die in 1944

He died in Leicester. There is nothing to suggest that he was taken back into the army after his 1942 discharge.

The reference to Para 390 (xvi) is to the paragraph of Kings Regulations that covered his discharge.

Poison gas wasn't used in combat in WW2.  He may well have been seriously wounded though.
