There isn't an easy way really. You need to download the image from Ancestry and then upload it to another (image hosting) site (such as photobucket).
I can post the pages up tomorrow (just downloading them at the moment)

Edit: Actually from the date of his death, I presume that he died at the Battle of Festubert as the 1st Batallion of the Irish Guards took part in it during those dates. Although it doesn't seem like there was much action:
May 18th 1915
1100 hours: The Commander-in-Chief ordered a bombardment to start at 1430 hours to be continued for two hours before the attack of the 2nd Canadian and Guards Brigades, who were each to advance on a 650-yard front, from and including both School House and Ferme Cour d'Avoue.
1500 hours: Owing to difficulty in the transmission of orders, our bombardment began at this time.
1630 hours: The Guards Brigade started their advance. Owing to heavy enfilade fire at short range from newly constructed German trenches, the attack had to be discontinued.
1720 hours: The 3rd Canadian Brigade relieved the units of the 21st Brigade in their forward positions.
1930: The Guards Brigade consolidated positions which they had gained.

I think you're getting mixed up with something. I really, really doubt that we have 2 Thomas Kerrigans, who both died the same day. The "Manorhamilton" means that's where he lived/signed up and not where he was born.
