Mid Sussex Times - Wednesday 19 January 1944

VEHICLE NOT TRACED.
The Coroner adjourned for three weeks an inquest on another Candian soldier, Donald Stevenson Campbell Macintyre (28), who was knocked down by a military truck in the Newick-Uckfield road, Maresfield, on the night of January 1, as the vehicle had not been traced. Macintyre died in the Cuckfield hospital the following morning.

Evidence was given that a 15cwt. truck came zig-zagging along, and one or two soldiers got out of the way, but Macintyre was knocked down. A 15cwt. truck afterwards came from the opposite direction and stopped at the scene of the accident, the driver and an officer getting out. A soldier tried to take the number, but, it was stated, the driver and the officer kept getting in the way. The soldier, however, saw that the number ended with "98"

P.C. Sharp, of Buxted, said that extensive inquiries had been made by the police and military.
