LINCOLN CURATE AND SISTER IN AMAZING CAR ACCIDENT
WIRE ACROSS GATEWAY
HUCKNALL VICAR'S SON & DAUGHTER - FRIEND BADLY HURT
MISHAP RETURNING TO CAMP
The Rev. T. E. M. Barber and Miss Sylvia Barber, son and daughter of Canon and Mrs. Barber, Hucknall Vicarage, were victims an extraordinary accident at a camp near Lincoln. Mr. Barber is a curate at Lincoln, and was connected with a camp of boys .
He left to obtain a supply of provisions, and on returning he saw the gate open, so he continued in his open car.
However, during his absence, wire had been tied across the gateway, and after breaking the windscreen it caught the Reverend T.E.M. Barber and lacerated his nose. Seated beside him was his sister who was cut about the eye and forehead.
In the back, seated, was a fellow curate who had his pipe snatched from his mouth, dislodging two teeth and driving a third into the gum. It is said that if the latter had been a taller man he might have been decapitated.
