    Hello

    HARRIES, Hubert James John - Chaplain - Sqdn/Ldr - 88005 - hhe Daily Mirror of Octoiber 20th 1944 reported the inquest into his death. It reports that
    he shot himself shortly after celebrating communion at an R.A.F. bomber station in the Midlands. He had recently returned from serving in North Africa on medical grounds, and was very upset about it. He had aslo spoken of domestic worries. A verdict of suicide while the balance of the mind was disturbed was recorded.

    MUSGROVE, Geoffrey Dennis - AC1c - 1818707 - Godfrey, not Geoffrey.

    Regards

    Simon
