Bruce D.F. Searle

Norwood News – Friday 25 October 1940 :


Bruce D. F. Searle, the 18-years-old son of Mr. W. G. F. Searle, Courtneyroad, Colliers Wood, a former member of Mitcham Borough Council, fell a victim to a raid. He was leaving a station after a Raiders Passed signal when a bomb fell, and the blast killed him outright as he was walking in the street.

The Commonwealth War Grave Commission casualty record shows a different spelling for his surname, SEARL, and his age differs as well.
