Corporal Henry Gilchrist


On February 16, 1954, Gilchrist was travelling on a straight stretch of Highway 3 from Aylmer to Tillsonburg. At about 11:50 p.m., his right front fender clipped the left rear of a truck parked on the south side of the highway. His car spun and he was thrown out of the car to be struck immediately by a car following close behind. He died three and a half hours later in hospital as a result of the injuries he sustained.
