    Hello,

    AUSTRALIA.

    165353 LAC Arthur Bruce HOBSON RAAF.

    165353 LAC (Flight Rigger) Arthur Bruce HOBSON RAAF (of No.7 Aircraft Depot, Tocumwal, NSW), was electrocuted at RAAF Deniliquin, on 15 July, 1946. LAC Hobson, along with a companion, was recharging a mobile-type electrically-driven air compressor. Hobson plugged the lead into the power point and switched on the power, he then ran his hand along the lead and when he was four feet from the compressor, he yelled, and collapsed to the ground unconscious.
    Unfortunately, the lead had an exposed live wire which Hobson had touched. Artificial respiration was immediately started and he was removed to Denilquin hospital where death was pronounced.

    The coroner found death was due to accidental contact with an exposed electric wire.

    Hobson had arrived at Care & Maintenance Unit, Deniliquin (from RAAF Tocumwal), only a few days before.

    Alex and Malcolm,

    A little more on the following:

    UK
    ECCLES, Edward - AC2c - 1699487 - the Lancashire Evening Post of July 17th 1946 reported the following:

    "Aggravated by War Service"
    A verdict that "death was due to heart failure following treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis, aggravated by war service," was recorded by the District Coroner (Mr. W. Blackhurst) at a Preston inquest on Edward Eccles, aged 45, of Pollard Street, Preston, to-day. Eccles died in Sharoe Green Hospital, on Monday. Eccles had been discharged from the R.A.F. with a 100 per cent disability pension.

    MITCHELL, Magnus Wallace - LAC - 1367214 - an announcement in the Dundee Courier of July 16th records that he died at Dundee Royal Infirmary.

    MUTTON, Percival Albert - LAC - 1717467 - a family tree on ancestry.co.uk records that he died at Archway Holloway, Upper Holloway.

    SNART, Bertie - LAC - 1268657 - Bert Snart, registered Braintree, Essex, September 1946. The National Probate Calendar records him as Bertie, and states that he died at Black Notley Sanatorium, near Colchester.

    Regards

    Simon
