Extract from Hertfordshire Mercury, Saturday 21 August 1915:

WELWYN VIADUCT
TRAGEDY.

HODDESDON SOLDIER KILLED ON DUTY.

A shocking accident occurred at Welwyn Viaduct early on Saturday morning, whereby a Hoddesdon soldier, Pte. William John Brown, 3/1st Hertfordshire Regiment, lost his life. It appears that about 2 a.m. the guard was being relieved at No. 2 box, and Brown was in company with the corporal of the guard. Just as they were crossing the up line a down train was observed approaching. The sentry shouted to Brown and the corporal that an up fish train was also approaching. The corporal heard the warning in time to get clear, but Brown stepped back in front of the on-coming engine anti was knocked down. His terribly mutilated body was found about 50 yards from where he was knocked down. The skull was smashed, the left foot cut off, and practically every bone in the body broken, death being instantaneous. The remains were picked up and conveyed to the Cowper's Arms to await an inquest.
When the body was picked up the unfortunate man's rifle with bayonet attached was missing, and on search being made the rifle was discovered deeply embedded in the embankment, but the bayonet was missing. Later in the morning, when the engine of the train which knocked him down was examined at King's Cross the missing bayonet was found firmly attached to the front of the engine.
THE INQUEST.
An inquest was held on Saturday afternoon in the general waiting-room at Welwyn station, before Mr. Francis Shillitoe, coroner for the district.
Capt. Gallop and Capt. Phillips represented the military authorities.
Mrs. Jessie Brown, 21 Bell Lane, Hoddesdon, was the first witness. Deceased, William John Brown, was her husband. He was a fitter by trade, but prior to being called up was working at the Hoddesdon Brewery. He was 43 years of age.
Corpl. Arthur Spencer Fellingham deposed that deceased was in his company. On Saturday morning witness roused him in order to go on guard and relieve the sentry at No. 2 box. As they were proceeding there they saw a down train coming. As soon as it passed deceased stepped across the up metals, but hearing another train coming he stepped back on to the up line again as the train approached. The engine struck deceased and carried him about 50 yards. Witness called to the signalman, who told him to let him know when they had got the line clear. They found the body in the centre of the up line. Witness got the body clear, and reported the affair to the main guard. Witness had frequently relieved guard with deceased at this particular place, and he had been on duty day and night previously. Deceased was used to crossing the line.
A Juror : Was it in your opinion a pure accident?- Yes, it was a pure accident. The man was confused and lost himself for a moment.
.... article continued ...
.... article ends ....
P.s. Wood, Welwyn, said that he was informed of the accident about 2.40 a.m., and on proceeding to Digswell box he found the body of a man lying there. Witness searched the body and found five rounds of ball ammunition, a King's South African medal with bars for 1901 and 1902, together with other things.
This was all the evidence, and the jury found that deceased had been accidentally killed whilst, in the discharge of his duty as a soldier.
Capt. Gallop expressed the regret of the officers and men, and on their behalf desired to express their sympathy with the widow and family, who would have the satisfaction of knowing that deceased was killed on duty while serving his King and country. The witnesses handed their fees to the widow.
The deceased who leaves a wife and, five young children to mourn his loss, was a native of Epping. He served his time, in the King's Royal Rifles, and held both the Queen's and the King's medals for serving with credit during the South African War. He is also said to have had a Chitral medal. Since the South African War he had lived in Hoddesdon, and worked as a handy man at the Brewery until Easter Monday, when he joined the National Reserve. He was very popular with his comrades and his untimely death cast gloom over the camp at Welwyn.
