Warrington, Quenelda (?–1945)

News has been received that Group-Captain G. N. Warrington, RAF, and Mrs Warrington, who was formerly Miss Quenelda Clegg, of Melbourne, lost their lives on September 8 while yachting in Sligo Bay, off the north of Ireland. It is believed that their yacht struck a mine. No trace of them was found. They leave a four-year-old son, Alister. Mrs Warrington was the daughter of Lieut-Colonel Humphrey Clegg, of London, and Mrs Clegg, of South Yarra. She attended St Catherine's School, Toorak, and after leaving school visited England with her mother, and was married there. During the war she worked as a land girl in Shropshire, England. Her husband served with the RAF in Burma for three years, and had just received a new appointment in Ireland.
