The exact circumstances of the death of Cpl Kilbride are not known.

It should be noted that we have an Image of a Signals Intelligence Unit formed for the raid at Dieppe which operated covertly on on this raid as a platoon of 40RM Commando.  On that image Cpl Kilbride is named as a member of the unit and the image is annotated that he was later KIA.

The unit was 10 Platoon 'X' Company under the command of Lieutenant H.O. Huntington-Whiteley , their role to acquire signals intelligence documents from German Naval HQ at Dieppe. 

This Unit was later redesignated as 30 Assault Unit.

It is not known whether he was still with the Unit at the time of his death. The CWGC show his unit as 40RM Commando and for the present he is remembered on our ROH for 40RM Commando.
