    Hello

    MINETT, Phillip Lancelot - Cpl - 612929 - the Birmingham Mail of August 18th 1944 reported the inquest into his death. It records that a small fire started at his feet when he lit a cigarette, and when he tried to beat out the fire with his battle dress blouse, he knocked over a bowl of parrafin, which ignited.

    Regards

    Simon
