Mrs. Marwood, an old Bolton on Dearne resident, who for the present is residing away from her home district, has had a letter from the Wing Commander of her son’s section in the R.A.F. stating that her son, George Walton Marwood, a Sergeant Observer in the Royal Air Force is missing.

Sergeant Observer Marwood went over Western Germany together with other machines and the machine in which he was one of the crew failed to return.
