    CLARK, Horace Alexander - AC1c - 960238 - RAFVR.
    Enfield (Hertford Road) Cemetery, Middlesex.
    Firearm Accident. He died in hospital from a bullet wound in the stomach, sustained at a place where he was stationed. The evidence showed that Clark was in the transport office at his depot and was seen talking to Driver Hector Samuel Shaw. Driver Shaw said he and Clark were good friends...as witness turned round he noticed that Clark had a revolver in his left hand with the butt pointing towards witness, as though he was handing the revolver to witness. Witness put out his hand and pushed it away, and thouht he said 'put that thing away.' As witness pushed it there was a bang. Clark dropped the gun and it fell to the floor and Clark sank into a small chair. Witness had the idea that Clark was joking. Dr. W. Thompson-Hill, senior medical officer, who accompanied Clark in the ambulance to hospital, said on the way he asked Clark how it happened. Clark assured witness that it was no one's fault, and that it was an accident.

    WALLACE, Bruce - LA - Fx.81425 - ADM 104 records that he died at the Colonial Hospital, Port of Spain, due to Pneumonia and Granulocytopenia (which is a decrease of peripheral blood granulocytes below lower limit of normal range).

    He was born in 1921 in Johannesburg, South Africa. His entry on the CWGC website records that he is buried in Mucurapo (Woodbrook) Cemetery, Trinidad.
