    Royston John Beare 1616594 , attached to E squadron of Number 1 Wing of the Glider Pilot Regiment , had been injured flying a Horsa at Hamminkeln on 24 March. Admitted to Number 9 British hospital suffering from severe bruising to the chest and legs and abrasions, and then transferred to Number 113 General hospital, he was evacuated to the UK and reported back to his unit on 14 April . Home on ten days leave, at 24 Kingsmead avenue, Kingbury, his father asked him to make some hot milk for his mother who was feeling unwell and when he smelt the milk burning, he could not find his son until he entered the garage and found him hanging from a rafter with his feet just touching the ground. An open verdict was returned as no note had been left and he showed no signs of depression
