    Hi,

    On 24 January 1940, Pilot Officer McComb was found wandering in the corridor near his quarters in a delirium, suffering from great head and neck pain. He was taken to York Hospital, where he was diagnosed with cerebro-spinal meningitis. He died two days later.

    McComb was due to be discharged from RAF service in 1941.
