20 December 1945 – James McNicol

James McNicol was hanged at 9:30am in 1945 at Pentonville for murder of a fellow army sergeant Donald Alfred Richard Kirkaldie.

Family research suggests that the 27-year-old’s crime was actually manslaughter, rather than a jealousy-fuelled crime of passion over female army soldier, Pte. Jean Neale.
