He died in his eighty-ninth year at Victoria Hospital in London on 21 May 2010.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The fonds consists of two pilot’s flying log books (22 November 1941 until 2 March 1945), 16 b&w photographs, and a certificate from the Department of National Defence for Air about Ward’s service war record. The two earliest photographs depict Ward as a toddler and the students of his school at Dorchester in 1933. The other photographs relate to World War II: his training at Montreal, friends and acquaintances in the service, and aerial bombardments.
