Extract from a Force 136 battle casualty report about his death .
"On arrival at our RV in the scrub, Sgt. REDWOOD was missing. A search party went out under Major BURKE and REDWOOD's body was found in the open. He had been shot at point blank range through the stomach with a large calibre weapon. He died instantly. This made it appear that B.T.A [Burma Traitor Army] was about who would quickly warn the Japs of our whereabouts. REDWOOD's body was placed in as decent cover as was available...." (report written by 253488 Major. J.E. Burke, Essex Regt and Force 136.) .
