    Hello

    HOPKINS, Robert Innes ( Canadian ) - Cadet Pilot - the inquest into his death at Cambridge was reported in several newspapers at the time. He was found gassed, and the inquest heard that he suffered a delusion about his eyes, and was said to have suffered an inferiority complex. A verdict of suicide by coal gas poisoning while the balance of the mind was disturbed was recorded.

    Regards

    Simon
