The two soldiers were based at Catterick camp. Private Austin, of 400 Troop Royal Logistics Corps, and Lance Sergeant Gartland, of the Grenadier Guards, were returning from a training exercise at Warcop firing range, near Appleby, when the accident happened at 1.40pm.
E YORKS: Almost 40 per cent of mothers-to-be have taken up the whooping cough vaccine in Hull.
Figures released this week show that in the Hull Teaching Primary Care Trust area, 38.6 per cent of pregnant women have received the vaccine.
The programme was launched at the start of October as the number of whooping cough cases continue to rise nationally with 7,000 cases so far this year, compared to just over 1,000 during the whole of last year.
There have been 13 deaths so far this year in young children under three months old.
The vaccine is aimed at women between 28 and 38 weeks of their pregnancies.
E RIDING: Plans have been submitted for five new homes in Willerby.
Owner BG2 Ltd is seeking permission to build the homes at St Luke's Court in the village.
The proposal involves converting an existing building, originally constructed for use as flats for elderly people, into the homes.
The applicant argues the development would not adversely affect or harm the area.
