Fred Watling - fatal accident, 1924

Postby pspooner » 17 Oct 2019, 02:10

My Great Uncle Fred (Frederick Catton) Watling was killed in an accident on 25 March, 1924. That was a Tuesday, and I would think this would have been reported in the Lynn News. Not sure of the publishing frequency in those days so whatever was the next issue should have the article. I tried to look this up in the Lynn Library the last time I was in the UK but, as bad luck would have it, the microfilm reader was on the fritz and the library was very busy so I had to give up the quest. If anyone is visiting the Library, I would really appreciate having a copy of the report of the accident. My mother said it had something to do with a horse, but you know how memory can play tricks. Thank you!

Hello Pam. I have been through the LN&A for 1924 and could find nothing on Fred.
The microfilm is in such a bad condition I could have missed it though.
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

Thank you so much for your kind attempt at finding out what happened. So sad that it will remain a mystery for now. Perhaps something will turn up in the future.

Have a good holiday season!
