DEATHS ELSEWHERE

September 30, 1992

William Douglas-Home, who was court-martialed in World War II for refusing to bombard the French port of Le Havre, has died, his niece said yesterday. Mr. Douglas-Home, 80, a younger brother of former Prime Minister Lord Home, died Monday of heart failure at his home near Winchester, about 50 miles southwest of London, his niece Caroline Douglas-Home said. His plays, mostly light comedies, drew heavily on his aristocratic background and included "The Reluctant Debutante" (1955).
