    Thanks Dennis

    "Mr Lawrence Whitfield, the airman and amateur jockey, who died on Thursday from injuries received at Hurst Park races early in the year."

    He was injured on 16th Jan 1931 - I found a reference to that bit when looking in Jan 1931 - I found a 'L Whitfield' but did not connect!
