    Hello

    UK
    GAWTHROPE, William Thomas - AC2c - 2370485 - registered Greenwich. The inquest into his death was reported in the Daily Mirror of December 10th 1947, which records that he fell ill whilst completing his training course. He refused to report sick as he did not want to delay the completion of his training. He was still unwell when he came home on leaving after passing the course, and he fell unconscious whilst at home, and died in hospital. His father told the inquest that he suffered from diabetes. A verdict of Misadventure was returned.

    Regards

    Simon
