Fawssett, Leonard

Sergeant First Class, 410

At about 11 a.m. on the 4th May 1880, Fawssett was a passenger on a stagecoach which was making a sharp turn from Nolan Street across the embankment onto the Swan Hill Road, at Kerang. At this time some harness broke and the coach turned on its side. Fawssett who had been riding on the box with the driver, broke his leg. It later became necessary to perform an amputation, and although this operation was successful gangrene set in, and he died on 12th June, 1880 at Kerang.
