Hello

EDNEY, Dennis Frank Ernest - AC2c - 1625554 - the Yorkshire Post of July 28th 1946 reported the following:

Leeds City Coroner, Dr. J. A. Swanton, refused to allow a solicitor to question the widow at an inquest today on Dennis Frank Ernest Edney (22), aircraftman, Broadlea Terrace, Bramey, found gassed at that address on Friday.
The widow, Violet Adele Dora Edney, said her husband had been depressed by failing to get his wings in Canada, and by the death of a friend.
