24th Battery, Royal Field Artillery (British Army)
24/11/1917 (Killed in Action)
Edward Coulter was the son of Eliza Coulter. Edward was born about 1889 in Fivemiletown. There is much confusion over Edward’s early life and family. It has not been possible to definitely state his exact family. The 1901 census records Edward Coulter as age 11 living with the family at house 7 in Tattinfree, Cross, Fermanagh. His great-grandmother was living with the family. Her name was Ellen Kane. It seems that Edward Coulter adopted his great-grandmother’s name on enlisting. Hence he is now described as Edward Kane. Gunner Edward Kane was serving with the 24th Battery, 38th Brigade of the Royal Field Artillery (RFA) when he was killed in action in France on 24th Nov 1917.
