    Weaver,41, registered at Ashford, Kent. It was where CWGC place his wife so he may have died at home

    Hello

    AC2 John Patrick ATKINS - 1012479 - the Western Daily Press of May 27th 1942 reported the following:

    Drowned in the Harbour
    A verdict of "Found drowned" was returned at the inquest yesterday on John Patrick Atkins (30), of Princess Victoria Road, Clifton, an aircraftman. He was found on Saturday morning in Cumberland Basin by P.C. William Rowe of the River Police. His foster mother stated that he had been home on leave, and had gone out, but did not return. He had no troubles that she knew of, and had good sight.

    Regards

    Simon
