LIFE photo - remains of the Duke of Kent

When Princess Marina, the Duchess of Kent visited Singapore in 1952, the Duke who accompanied her was her son, not husband.

Her husband, Prince George had died in an aircraft accident in 1942.

Amongst LIFE magazine's released images hosted by Google are these two by Hans Wild taken in 1942 in London.

"An RAF ambulance transporting the remains of the Duke of Kent, George Albert Nichlas Kent."

"RAF officers saluting Duke George Albert Nicholas Kent's casket as the paulbearers pass by."
