Info from RAF BEA Site,
updated by Mike Graham 41st

Recollection from a 3 Sqdn B/E: Ken Munro had been in the hospital at the far end of Fulton Block (IDH) for several days, and was then discharged. The following morning either on the way to breakfast or on returning to the billet he collapsed and died. As far as I am aware we were never told the cause of his death. I was friendly with Ken and I always wondered about his death.
