Update - In February 2016, the MoD have accepted that William above now qualifies as war dead. This was documention I sent them proved that he died from the same injuries as he was discharged from the army for.

From information received I am told that this gentleman was suffering from "shell shock" from his experiences in World War One and subsequently died in a local mental institution. For that reason I consider him to be one of "Newport's War Dead",  Attached below is the Medical Board's assessment that he is totally unfit for duty attributed to service.

Raymond Steed was born Monday, 1st October 198 at 2 Kimbely Terrace, Malpas, St Mellons Road  and was at the time youngest recorded  service death of WWII who died aged 14 years & 207 days.

Raymond’s official service record (CRS10) shows he joined the Merchant Navy Reserve Pool (MNRP) 29th December 1942, just two months after his 14th birthday, joining his first ship as a Stewards boy at Newport the same day. The ship being the former Royal Mail Line, 15,629grt., SS Atlantis which had been converted into a Hospital Ship in 1939. He left this ship 13th March 1943. After taking his leave Raymond joined the Empire Morn at Newport on 4th April 1943.

Catapult Aircraft Merchant Ship, Empire Morn, 7,092grt. (MOWT, Headlam & Son-Whitby) had loaded with a cargo of naval, military and RAF equipment for Casablanca & Gibraltar left Milford Haven sailing to the Barry Roads anchorage while waiting to join up with the combined 69 ship convoy OS-46/KMS-13 which sailed from Liverpool on 15th April 1943.

On 24th April the convoy split into two and continued to their individual ports of call. On the evening of Monday 26th April at 9.45pm an explosion rocks the ship followed by a secondary explosion in the ships magazine seriously damaging the stern of the ship and blowing out a greater portion of the crew accommodation. At 10.05pm the captain decides to temporarily abandon ship until daybreak to assess the situation further. A thorough search and head count reveals twenty-one men are missing before the ships lifeboats are launched. The following morning at 5.30am the ships Captain, all his Officers and three crew members, re-board the ship and assisted in working the vessel into Casablanca with the assistance of the salvage tug USN Cherokee.

On 28th April at 2.30pm during a further search through the wreckage of the crew accommodation, the remains of of two crew members were found and extricated and immediately recognised as that of Raymond Steed and John W Gardner, an 18year old Ordinary Seaman. Identity papers found on both the bodies confirmed without doubt who they were and it has was stated that both men had been killed instantly in the explosion. The remains of the other nineteen killed were never found  either being blown over board or incinerated. On 29th April 1943 at 2.00pm the bodies on Raymond and John were laid to rest at the Ben M’Sik Cemetery about six kilometres from Casablanca town centre which lies between the main road to Marrakech and the road known as Oulad Zianc. Present at the service was the Captain, all Officers and surviving crew who could be spared from duty.

German records show that the Empire Morn had detonated a mine laid earlier on 10th April 1943 off Casablanca by U-117
