Thanks Mike, it's good to know my findings match the Service Records. And yes, as we've already seen many times on the forum another case of young children suffering appalling injuries if not deaths of this sort which were all too common in those days, must have been so difficult for mothers to watch them while struggling with all the domestic chores and no modern labour-saving devices. I guess father George may have still been away at the time, eitherway definitely not the Christmas he and wife Edith were hoping for after a long and terrible war.
