    Sliwo Dawid X/62 , attached to 6th Battalion , sustained fatal gun shot wounds when two Levy vehicles were held up by armed bandits at Midnight near Quatra . The Levies were unarmed at the time and offered no resistance and the murderers were never apprehended but were believed to be Jewish rebels
