    Hello

    UK
    BAILEY, Frank Wilson - F/O - 82195 - the inquest into his death was reported in the Uxbridge and West Drayton Gazette of January 2nd 1948. It reported that he was found dead at his lodgings at Ruislip, with an envelope of barbitone capsules beside him. The article states that he had been a pshychiatric outpatient at West Middlesex Hospital. His doctor said the Bailey had had a bad time in the Desert Air Force and had an explosive temper. He was separated from his wife, and he had financial difficulties. The Doctor described him as "a man how had lived a somewhat selfishly irresponsible life and had got in a tangle and developed a bad temper. He seemed to behave in a deliberately unpleasant way at times - almost as if he enjoyed it."
    The Coroner returned a verdict of suicide while of unsound mind. Cause of death was barbitone poisoning.

    BAILEY, John Stanley - AC2c - 3111153 - registered Brighton.

    CULLEN, Walter Thomas - AC2c - 2321747 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at St. Martins Hospital, Bath. His death, aged 19, was announced in the Chelmsford Chronicle of January 2nd 1948.

    Post-discharge death, 2.11.1945 discharged from the RCAF.

    A family tree on ancestry.co.uk records that he was known as 'Doc' and that he died due to a cancerous brain tumour at Kingston General Hospital, Ontario.
