The death of Allan Sliman


April 20, 1945
Sergeant Alan Sliman, RAF, has given his life for his country. He was killed in a bomber crash. Alan Sliman was one of the finest sportsmen I ever met. An ideal captain and a clever football, his death as left a gap that will be hard to fill.
(Chelmsford Chronicle: April 20, 1945)
