HC Deb 20 March 1951 vol 485 c269W
132. Brigadier Medlicott

asked the Secretary of State for War if his attention has been called to the comments by the coroner at Oxford concerning troops of the Airborne Regiment in the case of a National Service man who died from injuries inflicted upon him by another soldier in Germany; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Strachey

Driver D. S. Moffat was injured in Brunswick on 31st August, 1949, as a result of being struck by some person or persons unknown. Exhaustive inquiries were made by the military authorities, and identification parades were held, but it was not possible to identify the soldier who committed the assault.
