    Hello

    UK
    VATER, Herbert - GAF - the Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records that he was found dead at around 3.30pm in a print works at Morton. His usual residence was no. 293 P.o.W. camp [Carronbridge Camp]. It records that he was last seen alive on 25th July 1947. Death was due to asphyxia by hanging, which was self inflicted.

    Regards

    Simon
