Hilary Oswald Hugh Warley-Wells was found shot at a post where he had been on guard and later died.

Before he died, he said that he had been attacked and that a man had grabbed his rifle and shot him.

However, at his inquest, it was heard that the place whre he was posted was unlikely to have been attacked and that it was not considered that his injury was homicidal.
