Re: 410130 - Unaccounted Airmen - 30-01-1941
MORGAN, Benjamin Glynn - NA2c - FX.81178 - ADM 104 records that he died 'presumably sub-acute bacterial endocarditis from which rating was due to be finally invalided from the Service 21.2.41.'
His place of death is recorded as Post Office, Moreton-in-Marsh. The Evesham Standard and West Midland Observer of February 8th 1941 reported his death, and noted that he was the son of the Postmaster at Moreton-in-Marsh, and died at home.
The article includes a lengthy description of his wartime experiences, from being bombed in an open boat, moving to the Midlands for flying training and surviving the bombing of Birmingham, where he served in the Auxiliary Fire Service. He suffered a head injury during one raid, and was at hospital in Moreton-in-Marsh and then at two R.A.F. hospitals. His health declined, and he was brought home by his father where he finally passed away.
