    William Charles Sawyer, aged 27, of Carlisle, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in his trial in November 1942 into the death of Duncalfe. He was accidentally shot during a road trip, in which they were both armed due to the nature of the journey.

    The Gloucester Echo of November 12th reports: 'Mr. Justice Lawrence at Derby Assizes today [told Sawyer] it would be a bitter remembrance to him all his life that he killed his best friend by negligence in handling a revolver. "It is of the greatest importance," he added "that men who have to deal with firearms understand the danger of them. Younger men going into the Services seem to be in the habit of playing about with them as though they are harmless." '

    Sawyer was sentenced to three days imprisonment, but was immediately discharged.
