    His service number is suspect, one possibility is 1591012, the first digit having gone missing. Sorry, can't help with your question.

    You can check the freebmd.org.uk site for home deaths/burials, might help you and us.
    Registered page 86 of the Hay district, there is also an infant, Paul Morgan on same page, one wonders if they might be related.

    Service Number is OK
    There is a Thomas Henry Morgan #591012 on Air 78

    He was a F/Sgt so probably on pilot training after earlier service

    The Infant is "Paul Morgan" aged 0

    Ancestry.com
    England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations),

    Has his place of death as South Wales Sanitorium, Bronllys, breconshire.

    Or I should say I suppose, it has a person of that name who died on that date.

    The term, u/t makes me think maybe he was injured in an incident much earlier, does the CWGC use that term frequently that late in teh war/aftermath?

    I associate the 'u/t' terminology with the 1941-42 period but that may be because I wasn't as much involved with Henk's 1943 query's - (engaged/married lilfe!!)

    'u/t' very much still in existence/used. It mostly referred to a body on some form of formal Training Course - as opposed to some of the informal Training Courses. These latter were known, in my day, as 'SBNs' (Sit By Nellie!).

    I'm referring to U/T in the context of CWGC records only, not to the modern day.

    and using http://www.hut-six.co.uk/cgi-bin/search39-47.php I can see that U/T was still in use, for 48 casualties in first 11 months of 1945.
