Other information

Clifford transferred from Auxiliary Units to 2nd Battalion (Clyst) Devon Home Guard 1st September 1943.

He was killed in a road traffic accident only a few weeks after leaving the Patrol. Aged only 22, he lost control of his motorcycle on the way to work and collided with a bus.

The coffin was carried to the grave side by “the deceased comrades of the Home Guard” which could have been the Auxiliers. Certainly a floral tribute was sent with the message “With deepest sympathy from the officers and men of 203”. Clifford worked as a tractor driver.
