Mystery soldier killed in Devizes
« on: Friday 16 October 20 00:20 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I came across an article mentioning my great-grandad George Le Roy, in the Bath Chronicle and Weekly Gazette for the 6th of December 1941, about an incident on the 2nd of November. Edward Nisbett is charged with dangerous driving and crashing an Army vehicle into the bus George was conducting. It says that a sergeant died, but not who. Iíve searched the CGWC, but there are just too many. I canít see it reported in any other newspapers. Can anyone please help me?

I remember reading the name Carson, and saw a James Carson die in the Devizes registration district in January quarter 1942, aged 29. Thereís a James Carson, Lance Serjeant in the Scots Guards who died on the 1st of November - the day before the accident.
