The Bury Free Press of February 1st 1946 reports of the inquest into his death, in which it reports that he was knocked down by a Jeep whose driver had suffered a black-out. A verdict of misadventure was recorded.

    WELSH, Peter - LAC - 653531 - the Scotlnd People's website Statutory Deaths register states that he died at Bo'ness Fever Hospital, suffering from TB.
