Signalman Stanley Courtney, youngest son of Mrs. and then late Mr Charles Courtney of 47 Trinity Lane, Hinckley, has been killed in action with the forces in North West Europe.

He was 23 years of age and had been in the army since February 1942. As a member of the Royal Corps of Signals, he offered his services with a paratroop division. Before joining the services, he was employed as a carpenter at Coventry. He was an old scholar of the Borough Congregational Sunday School. His elder brother Syd has been in the services over four years.

The Major General of Courtney’s Division has written a letter of sympathy to the deceased’s mother and the Lieutenant- Colonel in another letter has written: “Your son was tremendously keen on his job and was one of the most conscientious workers we had. He was very popular with his many friends and we shall all miss him”. Mrs Courtney has also received a message of condolence from the King and Queen.
