    Hello

    A little more on the following:

    BUSH, Charles Edward - AC2c - 4023786 - the Chelmsford Chronicle of July 25th 1947 reported that he accidentally drowned while bathing at Clacton. He had been home on leave from Pembroke Dock R.A.F. Station.

    LACEY, Albert James - Sgt - 752246 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at 120 Marsh Road, Pinner. The Harrow Observer of July 24th 1947 reported the following:

    Found Hanging
    A young ex-serviceman, proprietor of Mayfair Tailors, Marsh Road, Pinner, and prominent worker for the Pinner British Legion, Mr. Albert James lacet, of 65, East Towers, Pinner, was found hanging from a beam at his shop on Saturday. Aged 31, he was one of the principal organisers of last year's Christmas party, and did much good work in connection with Poppy Day. An inquest was held at Wealdstone yesterday (Wednesday), when the deputy coroner, Mr. Henry White, recorded a verdict that Mr. Lacey hanged himself while the balance of his mind was disturbed.


    PEARSON, Harold William Ernest - LAC - 1286866 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at Ellerslie House, Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham. Ellerslie House was a home for paralysed ex-servicemen: https://archiveshub.jisc.ac.uk/searc...b-4414dc1262f2
