St. John Head was once a respected member in Wellington Wells until he got a bad batch of joy, and was forced out the village. While living in the garden district he met Prunelle Whittingstall who he shared the same house with. During the time he slowly began to remember the day the children were taken away. At first he tried to decieve himself the Germans took them by force, but he knew it was a lie.
Within days he had enough of the suffering and committed suicide by hanging along with Whittingstall.
