Sapper Carlyle Woodhouse Williams, 466940 RE

I am not sure what he was doing in Portsmoth if he was a serving RE soldier. He was not a professional soldier, he had been a Postmaster for many years, and was 52 years old when he died. His home and family were in Dublin, and his body appears to have been brought back to Ireland for burial. It is unclear on cause of death " found dead in Portsmouth", but I cannot find any news report in Irish or English papers
