My Great Uncle a Military Cross winner was in 34th Battalion AIF and suffered the same fate in Villers Brettoneux. A non life threatening wound sustained in May 1918, but he died two weeks later from the gangrene infection.

Happened all to often. There was a young Lt Herps in 35th Bn who was wounded in July 1917, but seemed to be doing ok, only for things to turn bad and die 3 months later. There was only so much they could do with the medicines and techniques available.
