Address for Brave Denaby Woman
Saved Castleford People at Saint Annes
On behalf of Conisborough and Denaby townspeople, Mr R J Troughton, chairman of Conisborough Urban Council, at tonight’s meeting presented to Miss Gladys Cuttle (picture), 42 Edlington St, Denaby, and illuminated address to marker bravery in rescuing two Castleford people from drowning at St Annes on sea on September 8 last year.
Mr Trout explained that Miss Cuttle, on hearing cries for help, dived into the water. He hoped the address would become a family heirloom.
It was mentioned at the meeting that last month Mr Stanley Oldfield, of Conan Road, Conisborough rescued Billy Clayson, aged 5, from drowning in the river Trent, at Owston Ferry, near Doncaster.
The Council decided to acquaint the Carnegie Trust and the Royal Humane Society with the facts.
