Sadly, the two young daughters of Colour Sgt Henry Pickersgill, Elizabeth Ellen aged 4, and Fanny Louise 2, who were both originally rescued by Davis and Pickersgill later died later of burns sustained in the fire. The married quarters block where the families & children lived was on the upper floors above the cook house which clearly caught fire with catastrophic results.
