He was Joseph Edward Armishaw, aged 24, a flight mechanic, who was taken ill suddenly and died in a military hospital.

    Collided with Pony and Cart
    A Bury St. Edmund's man, now serving in the Forces, Sidney Albert Scott (30), whose home address was 42, Risbygate Street, was fatally injured on Saturday nigh at Honington. He was riding a cycle, when he came into a collision with a pony and cart, owned and driven by Mr. Sidney Balaam, of Meadow cottage, Sapiston. He was picked up unconscious and died early the next day in the West Sussex Hospital. Scott was formerly a bar attendant at the Suffolk Hotel, Bury St. Edmund's.
    William Plummer, labourer, Sapiston, who was a passenger in the pony and cart, said he saw deceased looking round at [some] people. He came along like that, and the next thing he rode straight into the pony.
    Balaam, the driver of the pony and cart, said that he shouted to Scott long before he hit his pony, but he took no notice.
    Dr. D. J. Martin said that death was due to inter-cranial haemorrhage. The Coroner returned a verdict of Acciental Death.

    Regards

    Simon
