What was your most poignant discovery?

RONALD MUNTING 

This morning I was asked by one of my long-term friends in the USA, "What was your most poignant discovery?" - I think the death of Ronald Munting must be in the upper, upper echelon. He was evacuated from London to Cornwall to escape the dangers of living in the capital but was then killed when he was blown up by a mine.

His parents,Arthur and Emily F Munting were also apparently killed in a separate incident during the London "Blitz" but no death registration has been found and they are not on the CWGC list of civilian war dead.

  1. Perhaps it means that Harry Dale's parents were killed?
