DETAILS OF DEATH

About 11 a.m. 3 December 1853 Constable Mullaly left the Sandhurst police camp driving a heavily laden horse and dray. The vehicle was packed high and Mullaly was sitting upon the front driving accompanied by Constable Peter Mcleod. On going down a hill two of the bags on which Constable Mullaly was sitting rolled off and he with them. The bag on which Constable McLeod was sitting also rolled off and he also fell to the ground. When McLeod got to his feet he saw Constable Mullaly stand up and not thinking his companion was seriously hurt McLeod went to stop the horse which was walking away. He then saw Constable Mullaly walk to the side of the road and sit down. Mullaly seemed to bend to one side of his body and McLeod immediately reported the accident to the Sergeant Major. Constable Mullaly was carried to the camp hospital where he died at 3 o`clock that afternoon.
