HC Deb 16 May 1944 vol 400 c8
13. Mr. Thorne

asked the Secretary of State for War if he can give any information in connection with seven soldiers belonging to the Essex Regiment who were drowned while swimming in tidal water a few days ago; and can he say what was the rank of the soldiers.

Sir J. Grigg

I regret that I have no information about this accident. Perhaps the hon. Member can give me some information which will enable me to trace it.
