    Hello

    INDIA
    STANTON, James Charles - W/O - 508824 - the Middlesex Chronicle of April 1st 1944 reported the following:

    W.O. J. C. STANTON, R.A.F., KILLED ON ACTIVE SERVICE

    Mrs. W. Stanton, of 26, Midsummer Avenue, Hounslow, last week received the sad news that her third son, Warrant Officer James Charles Stanton, R.A.F., has died in a Bombay Hospital. Aged 35, he leaves a wide and two young children in Newcastle.

    Educated at Hounslow Roman Catholic School, James Stanton was for many years an Altar boy at the Roman Catholic Church of SS Michael and Martin. He left Messrs. Napiers, of Acton, to join the Royal Air Force in 1928, and saw service in Egypt and Africa prior to going to France with the Expeditionary Force, and was one of the last to leave Dunkirk in the evacuation. He went to India two years ago. His father, Mr. William Stanton, who died in March, 1942, was a veteran of the South Africa War; his eldest brother, Mr. William Stanton, is a member of the Hounslow Branch of the Old Contemptibles’ Association, and another brother, Mr. Reginald Stanton, serving in the Royal Air Force.
