    CAYGILL, Frank - LAC - 1499561 -died in a road accident

    Airman's Death Follows Rutland Aerodrome Accident
    RAUCEBY R.A.F. HOSPITAL AUTHORITIES CRITICISED BY CORONER Tragedy Which Might Have Been Registered as "Natural Causes” CONDUCTING an inquest Rauoeby on the death of an airman following injuries received in a Rutland aerodrome road accident, the Sleaford coroner. Mr. E. C. Deal, made some strong criticism of the action of the authorities at the R.A.F. Hospital. Rauceby. in seeking to have the death registered in the same way as a death from natural causes.

    The inquest was on L/A/C’ Prank Caygill. Hareholme. Rossendale. Lancs., who fell off the back of lorry at Woolfox Lodge, on the Great Northroad. He sustained a fractured skull, and died shortly after admission to Rauceby RAF. Hospital.

    L A Ernest William Hill said that he sat in the cab with the driver the lorry when it left a site at Woolfox Lodge to go another site. Six other airmen. Including Caygill. were riding on the beck of the vehicle, which was loaded with five empty packing cases. On the way the driver took a wrong turning and when witness called his attention this he immediately swung to the right very suddenly. The driver gave no warning of this. The speed was about 15 to 20 m.p.h. He heard a shout and the driver stopped straightaway. Caygill was found lying unconscious on the road behind the lorry.

    The coroner: You see it is no means a natural death. Witness continued that before turning he reduced speed and the turn was normal. “There was no need for anyone fall off. provided he was sitting down.” In his summing up. the coroner said that there was no evidence before him as to whether Caygill was sitting down or not He attributed no blame to Davies, and returned a verdict of “accidental death.
