Extra Food May Have Saved Life
It was stated at a Stourbridge inquest today by Prof. J. M. Webster, director of the Home Office Laboratory, Birmingham, that if a 32 year old painter and decorator had been grabted extra food and delicacies, and he had taken them, that he would have had a better chance of resisting the illness from which he died.
An application for extra food, it was stated, had been turned down.
The inquest was on John Thomas Taylor, of South Road, Stourbridge, who served in the R.A.F. for four years ans was discharged in September 1944 as medically unfit. He died from chronic bronchitis, bronchiextasis and emphysema, and wasting.
Dr. Cheese said thta he supported a Red Cross application to the Ministry of Food for extra food which, he stated, was necessary to build up Taylor between his severe attacks of illness.
