FIRST LIEUTENANT ALLEN C. MIDDLETON had a been a high school language teacher before the war. Fluent in at least two foreign languages, he was serving in Brisbane, Australia when he was shot dead by a deranged former Australian soldier upon leaving a public restroom. Frederick Everest, 34, suffered from paranoid delusions concerning the American armed forces. After shooting Lt. Middleton and Petty Officer John D. McCollum in separate attacks, Everest was apprehended and spent the rest of his life in a mental institution. Everest was labeled "The Man in the Grey Suit" by the Australian press.
