    John Rawlings is described as an Apprentice and his number shows he was part of the 39th entry, started at Halton January 1939 so looks like natural causes or training accident.

    The Bucks Herald of October 4th 1940 reported that the Coroner recorded an open verdict into the death of Rawlings, who was 'found dead in a shower bath at the barrack room at the camp, suspended by a towel around his neck from a clothes hook on the wall.'

    It also reported that 'the Coroner remarked that there was no evidence before him to indicate under what circumstances the deceased youth met his death, nor any evidence as to the state of his mind at the time.'

    regards
