    Bawden is listed as Killed on Active Service, Kouratou is listed as Died of Wounds or injuries received on Active service.

    Same page of the register has a Glady L Edwards matching a Civilian war dead from WALTHAMSTOW, MUNICIPAL BOROUGH. There are a large number of civilian war dead for this date in that area so perhaps a V1 attack.

    Revell and MacIntosh are listed as DOAS.
    Cannot find Morris or Sadler.

    W V Armstrong is listed as DOAS but Berry is not in the same 1945 casualty list.

    Hello

    SADLER, Edmund Daniel Charles - LAC - 1202724 - the Chichester Observer of August 26th 1944 reported the inquest into his death. It records that he shot his wife dead with a stolen Sten gun and then turned the gun on himself at West Broyle Drive, Chichester. The article reports that he was "insanely jealous" and that the situation had become so strained that his wife had consulted a solicitor. The jury returned a verdict that Sadler had murdered his wife and then committed suicide, and that it was a case of 'felo de se' - an illegal act of suicide.

    Regards

    Simon
