    Hello again

    RICHARDSON, Thomas William - LAC - 1482086 - The Penrith Observer of May 21st 1946 reported the following:

    YANWATH BRIDGE FATALITY
    Alston Manís Crash on Journey Home
    Motor cycling home on 48 hoursí leave on Friday afternoon, an Alston airman was the victim of a fatal accident which occurred at the hump-backed railway bridge at Yanwath, a few miles out of Penrith on the road to Ullswater. He was Leading Aircraftman Thomas William Richardson, 31 years of age, whose home was in Chapel Road, The Butts, Alston.
    It appears he was travelling home from his R.A.F. station near Barrow-in-Furness about 5 p.m. on Friday, and while negotiating Yanwath Bridge, collided with the wall on his offside, receiving severe head injuries.
    He was found lying on the road by Mr. J. Slee, Victoria Road, Penrith, and Dr. F. Edington, Penrith, and P.C. Lockwood, Clifton, were soon on the scene. After attention on the spot, the injured man was removed to the military hospital at Fusehill, Carlisle, where he died early next morning.
    The Carlisle City Deputy Coroner, Mr. T. Strong, opened the inquest at the hospital yesterday afternoon and, after formal evidence of identification, the inquiry was adjourned until June 5th.

    Regards
