    Scottish death register confirms Farmer and Jeyes at Nathro Lodge.

    BTW farmer's name is given as Stanley Arthur Frederick.

    Horace Marsden Geldard 67435 , had first become ill serving with Number 1 EFTS on 19 August 1942 when admitted to Number 31 general hospital, Belfast. His history was one of weight loss, tiredness and a persistent cough with phlegm. A chest X ray found a collapsed right lower lobe and a small mass above it. On 28 August 1942 he was transferred to RAF hospital, Halton where a bronchoscopy confirmed the diagnosis of broncho carcinoma with a squamous epithalioma .

    Transferred to the Midhurst sanatorium on 18 september 1942, an exploratory thoractomy found the tumour was invading the mediastinal structures and was inoperable. Placed on medical leave, he died at 28 Grove Hill Road, Doncaster whilst being treated with deep X ray therapy
