Mne Stockwell, 3 Cdo Bde Signal Troop, was killed during operations at Kangaw.

In the Third Jungle Book Issue 9 page 57 at the end of an article on the Brigade Signal Troop (BST) the following is written, "To complete this story of the B.S.T. it is well to remember the BEM and three MiD's that have been awarded the troop, and to deplore the loss in action of an old member - Jack Stockwell. To his wife go the troop's deepest sympathy and sincerest wishes for the future."

His name is also listed on the Roll of Honour in the book 44RM Commando, From Achnacarry to the Arakan, by Tony Mackenzie.
