SAMUEL MORROW RASC 1942
« on: Tuesday 19 January 21 23:00 GMT (UK) »
SAMUEL MORROW, RASC died on active service on 12 June 1942 at an unidentified location in the south of England (probably in the Brighton area) in a vehicular accident. His records give his address as 44 Bristol Street, BELFAST but this may have been the home of a family relative. At his Probate Hearing later that year his address was given as Birnaghs, Newtownstewart (Co Tyrone). Does anyone know how Samuel was associated with Birnaghs and, crucially, does anyone know where he is buried?
Any help would be appreciated.
