Auxiliary Fireman in WW2. Andrew Behan has researched this man:

Auxiliary Fireman Harry Richard Skinner was born on 8 December 1908 in Southwark, a son of John William Skinner and Louise Skinner née Spratley. His father was a Horse Keeper at a Wholesale Grocers. On 23 December 1908 he was baptised at All Saints Church, Newington, Walworth and the family resided at 2 Bowling Green Lane, Newcomen Street, Walworth. The 1911 census shows the family still there as do electoral registers until 1934 when his father died.

At some point he moved to 18 Westbury Avenue, Wood Green, London, N.22. and this was his address when he was injured as a fireman in the Auxiliary Fire Service as result of enemy action, aged 32 years, on 17 April 1941 at Costain House, Upper Woburn Place, London, W.C.1. He died the same day at the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Hospital, Euston Road, London, N.W.1.
