DICK, Louis Timothy Mylius

Lieutenant Louis Dick died in Paphos when a bomb was thrown into his vehicle as reprisal for the Governor’s refusal to commute the death sentences passed on two convicted terrorists who would be hanged next morning May 10 and after which EOKA would in revenge immediately ‘execute’ two other British servicemen.


Quartermaster Sergeant Alfred Wheeler, HQ 3 Commando Brigade, died during operations in Cyprus. He, and Mne. Benet Blakeway, both perished from exposure on anti-terrorist operations after their vehicle fell into a deep gully in the Troodos Mountains during a blizzard [1].
