We have with regret to record the death on active service of Sergeant-Pilot Harold Ian Maxwell, R.A.F., youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Maxwell, formerly of Firgarth, Edward Road, Bromley, and now of Newlands, Plaistow Lane. Friends and neighbours unite in offering heartfelt sympathy to them.
Mr. Harold Maxwell was born at The Avenue, Grove Park and educated at St Lawrence College, Ramsgate. In business he was first of Sweet and Maxwell, law publishers, Chancery Lane, London.
During the Munich crisis of 1938 he joined the R.A.F. as a Volunteer Reserve, and was called up three days after war broke out in September, 1939. He was a keen motorist. Mr. and Mrs. Maxwell are both members of the Sundridge Park Golf Club.
The burial was a Bromley Hill Cemetery on Wednesday, the Rev. F. W. Armstrong officiating.
