Horse rears up and unseats his rider

Injury to soldier

At about 3.15 p.m. P.C. Springett was on duty at Bridge Inn crossroads, when a soldier riding his horse along South Street approached the crossroads. His horse then became spooked, and reared up sending the rider flying backwards and the horse ended up falling on him. He was examined on site by Major Henderson and Dr Dockram who ordered him to be sent straight to Herts and Essex Hospital in Rye Street. P.C.Springett recorded this incident on returning to the station.
