    3. Here's a little gem from TROVE - Struck by Rail Car Bunbury, June 6. Jack Stapleton, of Forrest avenue, Bunbury, had a remarkable escape about 2 p.m. on Saturday when a motor truck which he was driving was struck by a Bunbury-bound Diesel electric car at the King road level crossing, South Bunbury. It is said that Stapleton had fitted a new carburetter to the vehicle and was trying it out when the truck stalled on the railway line. Stapleton was accompanied by his eight-year-old son and both were thrown out, but escaped with minor cuts and abrasions. Kalgoolie Miner, Tuesday 7 June, 1938 And came across this via Google. STAPLETON (Leslie): 1928 - 2015 Dearly loved Husband of Laurie. Much loved Dad of Maxine and Barry, Robyn and Brian, David and Trina. Cherished Grandad of 8 Grandchildren and 13 Great Grandchildren. Just as you were you will always be, a beautiful part of our memory. Sincere thanks to Silver Chain for their care of Les. Published in The West Australian on Jan. 23, 2015 Recent enough to possibly locate some of Jack's family.
