    Barber,32, registered at Islington, N London
    Jacobsen(first name Maurice on the register),27, registered at Willesden, Middlesex,part of W London
    Schofield,29, registered at Hammersmith, S W London.
    with all 3 registered in what is now Greater London you might find a tie-in to Air Raids

    Atti Hassan 5293 and

    Jassim Taher 5567 and

    Hassan Nasir P/547 and

    Jumar Ahmed P/1709 ,

    All attached to 6 PG Battalion, were based in Bahrain when one Levy shot the other Levy and his NCOs, before being shot in turn by another Levy to stop the attack. It is unclear from their records which one was the assailant
