Description

Lieut. John Ebblewhite Paling. East African Service Corps. (ON 22-28) Killed 6 October 1942 age 30. Buried Gilgil War Cemetery, Kenya. Son of Robert, a Lace Manufacturer and Eleanor Ann Paling, of Salisbury, Southern Rhodesia, formally Beeston, Nottm.

From The Nottinghamian Dec 1942:
The younger of two brothers at the School, he showed much promise as a half-back at Rugby football, where in spite of a somewhat frail build and diminutive size, he was a tireless worker and a deadly tackler.
He had been in Africa for some years.
