Named medal box – sent to his mother Mrs R Garszynski at 14 Queen Anne’s Grove in Bedford Park, London (Ruth Anna Cornaby had got divorced in 1940 had re-married Jan Garszynski in 1945). Captain Cornaby was second in command of’A’ Squadron of the 7th Light Cavalry. A Japanese officer and a private soldier had been hiding on the roadside. Whilst the tanks were engaging other targets up ahead, a Japanese officer and a private soldier ran out of cover towards Captain Cornaby’s Lee tank. The private was killed by machine gun fire from another tank but the officer managed to climb onto Captain Cornaby’s tank. He killed Cornaby with his sword and he also killed the turret gunner. After Hubert and the turret gunner of the tank had been killed the Japanese officer jumped into the tank and attacked Vernon Jenkins. Trooper Vernon Jenkins was the tank loader on Captain Cornaby’s tank. During the struggle Vernon managed to fire all six rounds of his revolver into the Japanese officer and three more rounds from another revolver he managed to grab before the officer fell down dead. Jenkins was awarded the military medal for bravery for his actions in killing the Japanese officer. The katana sword that killed Hubert is one of the star items and treasures of the Scotts Dragoon Guards Museum in Edinburgh and it can be seen on their website. The sword was donated to the museum by Trooper Vernon Jenkins. Details of the attack and death of Captain Hubert Cornaby are included in the book’Tank Tracks to Rangoon by Bryan Perrett’.
