Raymond Steed

Raymond Victor Steed (1 October 1928 – 26 April 1943) was the second youngest British services recruit to die during the Second World War.

He was just 14 years and 207 days old when the ship on which he was a , SS Empire Morn, was blown up after it hit a U-boat mine on 26 April 1943.

He was previously described by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission as "the youngest known British services death," but this was revised in February 2010, when it was confirmed Reginald Earnshaw was actually younger, at 14 years and 151 days.
