A Scene
-----

Cyclists need to be on their guard. Yesterday at Wonford Sessions, William Coram, Heavitree; Edward Carter, Exmouth; Thomas Gibbons, Oliver W. Hindley, Miss Ellen Mary Peacock, and Miss T Somer, Exeter; Horace Gorwyn, Topsham; and Miss Margaret Clark, Heavitree, were summoned for driving or riding bicycles along the footpath on the Topsham-road, near Topsham.
Most of the defendants appeared and pleaded guilty, but Gorwyn,
a youth, contended that he was not guilty, as he merely pushed his machine along the path, and others who did the same had not been summoned. The evidence of P.C.'s Chaplin and vanstone was to the effect that defendant actually rode his machine along the footpath, and that although the road had been metalled there was space where defendant and the other persons summoned could have ridden without touching the footpath.Gorwyn put a number of wuestions to the witnesses, but did so irregularly, and the Deputy Chief-Constable ‎(Mr. Jesse)‎ interposed.
Mr Webber ‎(a Magistrate)‎:You are confusing the boy.
Mr Jesse: I am doing nothing of the sort.
Mr Webber: I say you are and I protest against it publicly.
Mr Jesse: I say I am doing nothing of the sort. i have a perfect right to interpose when questions are not being put properly.
Some of the lady defendants wrote that the roads were impassable for bicycles.
Mr Webber said that what the defendants stated was perfectly right.
Mr Jesse: You are adjudicating on these cases. are you going to give eveidence or not?
Mr Webber: A more cruel persecution than this never could take place.
Mr Collins: As chairman I don't wish to have any further remarks.
Mr jesse: I have never before had a remark made to me from the Bench like I have now, and if you came to get one person off you have no right to sit there and adjudicate.
Gorwyn was fined 6s inclusive; the other defendants 5s inclusive.
The Chairman said there had been so many complaints that the police had orders to take proceedings against cyclists using the public footpaths. The Deputy Chief-Constable had done what was perfectly correct in bringing the cases before the Bench.

Horace re-enlisted in the East Surrey Regt as pte 31850,he was amongst a batch of replacements who were transferred to the 2nd Manchesters on or around 19th July 1917,he died of wounds in either the 34th or 36th casualty clearing station at Zuydcoote.

Zuydcoote was mainly used by the 34th+36th casualty clearing stations for burying those who had died at these two hospitals,most of those who were killed outright,were buried in Coxyde military cemetery.
21 men of the 2nd Manchesters were killed or died of wounds in sept 1917,one other who was captured in 1914,died in a German POW camp

-----------------------

In the war diaries from the 10th Aug there were no casualties reported.

On the 1st of Sept the Bn took over from the 2/5th Bn Royal Scots in the right sub sector of the Lambartzyde Sector.
On the 2nd, 3rd, 4th the diaries just say Battalion in trenches.
On the 5th The Battalion in trenches, casualties 2/Lt ELR Horley and 1 other rank killed by shell fire.
On the 6th The Battalion relieved by the 2/5th Bn Royal Scots.

So the only Casualties reported in the diaries from the 10th Aug to the 6th Sept 1917 are the two on the 5th of Sept
-----------------------
pretty sure he was wounded by shell fire,pte 25699 Arthur Richards was wounded by shell fire,on 5th sept and died the same day as Horace, sgt 38836 William Sulliven and two others,were killed by shell fire on 7th sept while making improvements to the trenches
the battalion had working parties out wiring and improving the trenches during this period.
pte 39769 John Tindall was wounded by shell fire,and died on 13th sept
-----------------------
Had another look in the diaries and the history of the Manchesters, Both say the same the only casualties from the 2nd Bn were the two I mentioned and then again on the 21st Sept Rev. R. Gillanders the chaplin to the Battalion was wounded, while 3 other ranks were killed and 4 wounded.
