From "A Childhood and Beyond" by June Melser (sister to James Carter Leckie) "Jim was reported missing. It was a year before the Navy formally confirmed his death, but we were gradually accepting it. One evening my mother let out a wild archaic keening we had never heard before, but recognised as ancient animal howling of great anguish. She ended, "My son! My son!" Jim left a young wife who never remarried."
