On 25 August, just over a month later, Jack Young was gassed. The war diary of the 3rd Australian Signals Division Company mentions an unnamed O. R. (other rank) being gassed. No name is given . This could have been Jack. The 10th Infantry Brigade, to which Jack Young was attached, was involved in an attack on the village of Bray, about 32 kilometers east-north-east of Amiens.
Two days before the war ended, on 9 November 1918, Jack Young, whose lungs were damaged by the gas, died of pneumonia.
