15 December 1939, Jean Watson Moore, age 21, W.R.N.S.
« on: Thursday 09 May 19 11:38 BST (UK) »

In Whitley Bay Cemetery is the war grave of Leading Wren Jean Watson Moore. 

Tragically, Jean was murdered by her fiancÚ at some point during the late evening of 14 December 1939 and the early hours of 15 December 1939 at Cullercoats near Whitley Bay.  Her fiancÚ was sentenced to be executed but this was later commuted to a life sentence.  A number of people had signed a petition to save his life.
