    Hello

    LAC Thomas Eric DAVIES - 1832131 - the Coventry Evening Telegraph of July 13th 1943 reported the following:

    Stratford Bathing Fatality
    Sidney Arthur Hall, of 34, Cicely Road, Coventry, gave evidence at the inquest at Stratford-on-Avon yesterday on Leading Aircraftman Thomas Eric Davies, aged 19, of Lan Mill, Narbeth, Pembrokeshire, who was found drowned in the Avon near the Corporation-owned bathing place off Warwick Road.
    Hall stated that he was on the river in a boat late at night when he found a towel stuffed in the root of a tree and clothes near the tree. There was no one about and he returned to his caravan and kept a look-out, but saw no one swimming. He therefore reported to the police. Three days later Police Sergeant Vernon saw the body of deceased floating in the river in a dangerous part of the river near the bathing place.
    The Coroner in entering a verdict of "Death by misadventure from drowning," said it was very unfortunate that the young man, a non-swimmer, got into a dangerous part of the river near the bathing place where many cases of drowning had occurred. It might have been that, while enjoying the water, he did not see that he had gone out of his depth, although there were notices warning bathers.


    LAC John D. WILLIAMS - 1060771 - the Liverpool Evening Express of July 8th 1943 reported the following:

    BITTEN BY HORSE-FLY
    A soldier's death, caused by the bite of a horse-fly, was revealed at an inquest in Liverpool today. He was John David Williams (29), a married amn, of Mona Street, Garston, who before joining the forces was a furniture salesman.
    His mother, Frances Elizabeth Williams, said that her son came home on leave on Monday, and the same day he collapsed and died the following day in hospital. He had a swelling on his right wrist and his arm was inflamed. he told his mother that some days previously he had been bitten by a horse-fly.
    Medical evidence showed that death was due to blood poisoning.

    Regards

    Simon
