LINDLEY BROTHERS IN COLLISION

Marsh Boy Also Injured

Two young Lindley brothers, one an officer in the R.A.F., the other serving in the Navy, were injured this morning when the motor-cycle on which they were riding down Wesbourne Road, Marsh, came into collision with a motor-van at the junction of Westbourne Road and Eldon Road.

They were Flying-Officer Jack Warner (21) and Geoffrey Warner (18), both of 11, Plover Road. Jack Warner received a broken leg and a dislocated shoulder and his brother concussion.

Also involved in the accident was an eleven-year-old Marsh boy, John Sawyer, of 3, St. James’s Road, who is understood to have been walking near by at the time of the collision. The boy received concussion and abrasions.
