Cecil was killed at sea, as the memorial below shows (we think the memorial is in Burma).
It seems he died due to the ship he was on being sunk, probably whilst being transferred by ship to elsewhere in Burma.
This may well have been due to enemy action as some of the crew managed to fire guns at the enemy ship.
