9505 Royal Plantation, which first opened its doors in the glamorous 1950's as Plantation Inn, was originally part of the sprawling Coconut Grove Estate, owned by Mary Melhado. The resort began its days as a "sister" hotel to the adjacent, Jamaica Inn, operated by husband-and-wife team Cy and Gloria Elkins. Gloria—who came from a prestigious line of hoteliers (the Stuart and Pringle families) who had helped put Jamaica's fledgling tourist industry on the map—decided that the stunning property next door would prove ideal for a supremely elegant inn. So, armed with a stellar reputation and proven, international credentials, Gloria gathered together an impressive group of investors, which included Mr. Howard Wolff of New York, Dr. Lenworth Jacobs of St. Ann's Bay and Mr. Douglas Tucker, a prominent lawyer from Brown's Town, to help make her vision a reality. Quickly and accurately grasping the almost unlimited potential of this venture, these men rapidly joined forces with Gloria, becoming the very first directors of this new hotel, which was to be called—appropriately enough for a former estate—Plantation Inn. Thus, with Howard Wolff as its first Chairman and Len Jacobs as its first Vice-Chairman, Plantation Inn opened its doors to much fanfare and immediate, meteoric success in 1957.

The death ofPte. J. A. Flint,  R.M., of 85 CampbellRoad, Walmer, occurred with tragic suddenness last Monday.  After serving afloat for the last six years,he came home on
leave lastThursday, seemingly in excellent health. On Sunday evening he went with
his wife for awalk to Fern Dairy, Upper Walmer, and returned apparently in the best of
health.  On Monday morning about 9, he went into ashed in the back yard, and
presumably, heturned giddy, and staggered, striking his forehead on a window ledge.  He dropped to the ground, and never regainedconsciousness.  He was taken to the R.M.Infirmary, where he died about 2:30. Deceased, who leaves a wife and three children, was employed at theworks department at the Depot previous to going afloat.  He had served on the Hermione, Black Prince,Liverpool, and Birkenhead.  He waspresent at both the naval battles at Heligoland, and off Jutland, being on theBirkenhead, a light cruiser, during the latter great fight.  He attributed the salvation of is ship in theterrific battle to the gallantry of the crew of the lost Invincible, which shipreceived a pounding intended for the Birkenhead.  Deceased, who attained his 38th birthday onthe 8th of July would have completed 21 years in the Marines next June.  The widow can give no reason to account forher husband's sudden death, unless it was that his joy at being with his wifeand children again after so long an absence and such a nerve-testingexperience, proved too much for him. Deceased was very well liked by his comrades, and was devoted to hiswife and children, with whom the utmost sympathy is felt.  Both deceased and Mrs. Flint have beenconnected with the Good Templary for some years.  The funeral took place on Thursday, at DealCemetery, the coffin bearing many beautiful wreaths, being drawn to theCemetery by deceased's comrades of A. Company, the Rev. Scott, (Junior Chaplainat the Depot), officiating.  The mournerswere Mrs. Flint and children; Mother and two brothers; Mrs. Hardwell (sister-inlaw); Mr. George Johnston; Mrs. Hooper, Forest Hill;  Mrs. Willshaw, representing the local GoodTemplary, Cr, and Mrs. F. A. Colyer being also present in that capacity.  Beautiful floral tributes were sent by thefollowing: -- Wife; Children; Mrs. R. C. Waters and family; Mrs. Bell; Mrs.Hodge and family; Mrs. Rich; Mrs. Hatch; Mr. and Mrs. Randall and Elsie;Officers and crew of the Birkenhead; Mr. S. Carter; R. M. Infirmary Staff.

732. SAMUEL GEORGE BROWN (23), WALTER TAGG (20), HENRY BROWN (18), GEORGE WILLIAM WHITE (23), and ALFRED BROWN (20) , Stealing four pieces of silver, value £1,200, of Alfred Henry Lancaster and others. Second Count, for feloniously receiving the same.

MR. C. F. GILL. Prosecuted; MR. MUIR. Defended the Browns and Tagg; MR. SHERWOOD. Defended White, at the request of the COURT.

THEOPHILUS WILLIAM JOHN HALLETT . I am assistant manager to Messrs. Lock, Lancaster and Co., silver refiners, owners of the premises of Lock's Wharf, Limehouse—on Friday, 27th July, we had a quantity of silver in a safe on the premises; I think altogether there were ten pieces—the safe was in No. 2 Refinery—it was fastened by a Chubb lock, and a padlock on an iron door—it is a brick chamber—there was also a bar and a padlock—this (produced) is a photograph of the interior of the room, and of the fastenings—there is no window—I saw the silver there just as it was thrown in a heap before it is cold—it was thrown in on the Friday evening, the 27th, about five o'clock—I fastened the door myself at 5.30—there is a small iron ledge, which comes up about three inches from the floor, and the door closes against it, so that nothing can get in or out under the door—there is calcined bone-dust used, to prevent the silver adhering to the iron mould—it is used in the refinery, and there was some on the floor of this room—it adheres to the silver—these (produced) are the blocks of silver in the rough as they come out of the mould—the dust is not like whitewash—I put the keys in my pocket at 5.30, and kept them there till eight at night—I then received the keys of the outer door of the refinery from the foreman, also the keys of the door leading from the refinery to the engine-house, and I placed them with the other keys and put them all in the pocket of an old coat in a wardrobe in the inner office—I then locked the wardrobe door and left the key in the door, and locked the office door and took the key away with me in my pocket—it was my practice to leave the keys in the coat until the Monday; the office is a place in the yard, not difficult to get at—next morning, Saturday, the 28th, I arrived at the works at 9.30, and remained about the works; about eleven I was in the office and about the works—I went away then and came back at 2.30, and remained till four, when I finally left; everything to all appearance was all right then—I had locked the door at 11.10, and it remained locked till 2.30—when I left at four I locked the office and placed the key in an envelope, sealed it, and addressed it to Elliott, the foreman, and left it with the watchman, Holtoun at the gate in the Bridge Road—he does not live there; he was there twelve hours—he was day watchman, and
See original

was on duty from six in the morning till six at night; bat on this occasion he came on duty at six, and remained, he had orders to do so—the Saturday was a holiday to the employes, and their beanfeast, and there were only about eight men there up till about 2.30 in the afternoon—they would all leave then, but they would leave three men behind, the gate-man and two firemen, to look after the fires; the furnaces are kept going all night—I was not there at all on Sunday; I came back on Monday morning, the 30th, at 9.30—I then received information, and in consequence I went to No. 2 refinery and to the safe—I found four blocks of silver missing; these (produced) are two of them—the four would represent about 7,000 or 8,000 ounces of fine silver, worth about £1,200 sterling—the door of the safe was closed, but not locked—the police were communicated with, and officers came and made inquiries—I examined the door and found both the Chubb's lock and the padlock were broken—I did not notice at the time the way in which they had been broken—they were afterwards seen by an expert—I examined the doors of the refinery to see how access had been obtained; I placed my finger between the door-post and the door, and shot the bolt back; I could then get into the refinery—there is a lock on the top of the door, and a bolt at the bottom; the door was in halves—this is a photograph of the outside door of the refinery; it is like a stable door, in two parts—I did not lock that door when I went away on the Saturday; the foreman did. (A plan was put in, and the witness explained on it the position of the doors)—I do not know any of the Browns—I know "White, as a night watchman employed by Mr. Drew, a lighterman, to watch the craft moored at Lock's wharf—we employ Mr. Drew—he works for other persons as well—White should only pass backwards and forwards to the barges—he had nothing to do with the works, his business would be at the river; he had no business in our yard—when on duty he could come in at Bridge Road and go down to the quay, and he would leave in the same way—there is a slipway on the other side of the coal stores, and from there you can get to the front gate, to Bridge Road, leading out of Limehouse—when I went into the strong room on that morning I saw Sergeant Dicker pick a button off the floor—this(produced) is it—I found the keys where I had left them, in the pocket of an old coat—the office door, which had been secured, was open when I got there—the foreman had opened it—the wardrobe key was still there, as I had left it—I think it was unlocked, but I will not be quite positive—I did not examine it—I found the keys of the Chubb lock and the padlock as I had left them, but not the other keys with them, as the watchman had taken them out to unlock the refinery—it would be the watchman's duty to give them to the foreman—this photograph shows the position of the silver and the missing bare—there were ten pieces altogether, thrown in a heap; this shows the position they would be in the moulds, as they are run out.

Cross-examined by MR. MUIR. I have been in the habit of keeping the keys in the coat pocket when I have had charge of the works from Saturday to Monday—I have done that for three months preceding the robbery, when the manager was ill—there was a robbery from this refinery about eighteen months ago—the manager, Mr. Borden, then had charge of the keys—I don't know where they were kept then; I suppose in his pocket; I don't know for certain—I could not say that
See original

that robbery was effected by means of the keys—I know there was a robbery, but I can't say how it was effected; I was not there at the time—two lads, Davy and Boyne, were employed in the office besides me, and also young Mr. Lancaster, one of the firm—there is only one office, but there is a partition from the front to the back—none of those persons would know where the keys were kept, not even young Mr. Lancaster; the two foremen would know, William Howe and Phillip Elliott—Elliott was the one with whom I left the sealed envelope; it was sealed with the firm's seal, in wax—I did not examine the office door on the Monday; nor did anyone that I am aware of—I could not say who arrived first on the Monday morning—I was there all night on Monday; the office was open all night—I believe it was locked on Tuesday evening; it was my habit to do it—I could not swear that I did—I have locked it many times since—I did not find anything wrong with the lock or any damage to the door—the outer gates are eight or nine feet high; a person could climb over—they are secured by padlock on the inside—the place is never left; a watchman is always supposed to be on the premises—there is a small wicket which is always locked from the outside—from the wicket a person could reach the padlock and undo the gates; there are always furnacemen there—a person on the outside could get over from the water side by climbing the fence—there is a heap of coals on each side of the fence, which they could get over into the works; they would then have to get into the office—as far as I know they must have got in with a key—there is only that one key which I left sealed in the envelope; with that key they could get into the lower door of the refinery; that is the door which could be opened with the finger; the bolt of that door is visible from the outside—then they would have to get into the strong room—I think the person must have known the place—there was one unlocked door between the engine-house and the refinery—it was reported to me that that door was unlocked; it was found open, and the padlock on the ground; that was the one close by the safe—it was Howe's duty to lock that door; the key was not left in the padlock; that door would give access to the strong room, but it was locked inside—Howe had possession of that key; there were two keys to that padlock; the other key would be on the same bunch as the key of the safe, in the old coat pocket—there is a sliding door which leads from the engine-room into the works; that was left open; that engine-room adjoins No. 2 refinery—there are no furnaces in that room; they were not going; they were idle—that door was left open for the men who were repairing, going in for their tools; there would be no one there that night—no unnecessary doors were opened—I think the robbery was effected by someone acquainted with the premises—I do not know any of the Browns or Tagg—about 90 or 100 men are employed on the works; I daresay fifty or sixty of them would know the situation of the silver in this room; it may be more—from what I saw of the premises on the Saturday I think they were safe then—Holtom was the watchman on duty at four on the Saturday afternoon; the man to whom I gave the envelope—he would go off duty at six in the evening; he would be relieved by Bamford, the night watchman, but he was not on duty that night—Holtom was ordered to be there all night—when he came off duty I gave him instructions to remain, as
See original

Bamford was away on holiday till six on Sunday evening, when he would relieve Holtom—the two furnacemen would be there after four on Saturday, and they would be relieved by two others at six on Sunday evening—I do not remember asking Holtom for any explanation about the key of the office—he was not called as a witness before the Magistrate.

Cross-examined by MR. SHERWOOD. I know White as a watchman passing through the works for the past six or seven months—he was not employed by us, but by Mr. Drew—he moors the craft at our wharf for our goods, and for others; he is in a responsible position—he has to watch the craft moored there; that is all I know—he usually arrived at the wharf about two on Saturday, and usually remained there till Monday—he would have a cabin—after the discovery our inquiry went upon the footing that the entry was made by breaking the locks—the expert was called in, I think, on the Monday—I think I heard on the Monday that he was of opinion that keys had been used; I heard it from himself on the Tuesday, and his opinion was taken—until the expert came we thought that the doors had been smashed open—I considered that the keys were in a place of safety, because no one but the two foremen and myself knew where they were kept—I don't remember questioning Howe and Elliott with reference to the keys—the first thing I did was to inquire of Elliott whether he had received the key of the office in the sealed envelope; he said he had—I did not ask Howe for any explanation—I asked the men to account for themselves and they did; they gave me satisfactory answers—Holtom did not know where the keys were—the sealing of the key was not a regular proceeding, it was exceptional—I don't remember doing it before; I had placed it in an envelope, but not sealed it, only with gum; that is, when I have not handed it to the foreman myself—I sealed it on this occasion because I had to leave it with the watchman overnight, and the foreman would not be there till eight on the Sunday morning—in the meantime the envelope would remain in Holtom's custody.

By the COURT. The beanfeast made a longer interval between the regular work—I daresay the key had been passed in that way to a watchman eighteen or twenty times—there was no concealment about it—it had happened several times in the case of both watchmen and both foremen—the watchman would know that the office key was in the envelope—I don't know that he would have the opportunity of seeing to what use the foreman put it.

By MR. SHERWOOD. White would have to go through the yard to his post—he would not have to go to the refinery at all, and I never saw him there—if he had been found loitering about there he would have been sent about his business; at least, I should have done so—I have never seen a button like this before—I should not say it was a common button—I daresay it is a cheap one—I do not know anything about White's pay—I know now where he lives, I did not before—he had this coat on when I found him at his work on the Monday evening—I suppose it is a common coat, one that a watchman would wear when at work—there were two buttons missing—I have occasionally gone down to his place when he was on duty—I have had to give him orders—I always found him prompt, a good watchman, always on duty.
See original

Re-examined. When the police came on the Monday morning, they made inquiries and took statements from the different persons, and from that time the matter was placed in their hands, and they conducted the inquiry—I have seen White about the premises from time to time, when on duty in the evening.

WILLIAM HOLTOM . I am employed as gate watchman at Messrs. Lock and Lancaster's—my duty was to stay at the gate—on Saturday night, 28th July, I was there—I left about 7.45 p.m., and went home—I returned at 8.30—after that I did not go away from the gate at any time, but stayed there all night—there is an office there for me—I saw Larkin and Woodcock, firemen, that night—my wife brought me some beer during that night; I cannot say the time—no one else brought me beer—I saw White on that Saturday night at the gate—I do not know who let him in—he brought me some beer; he did not have any himself—I was in my box all Saturday night and all Sunday and Sunday night, about the works; I was not off the premises—I don't remember anyone coming for White on the Saturday night—on Saturday afternoon Mr. Hallett gave me an envelope with a key in it; I locked it in a box in my office, and put the key of the box in my pocket, and on the Sunday morning I gave the envelope to Mr. Elliott, sealed and in the same state as I had received it from Mr. Hallett—during the time I was at the gate I did not see anyone pass through carrying anything—the gate was locked—I left Larkin in charge of the gate on the Saturday night for about three-quarters of an hour from 7.45, when I went home—I saw or heard nothing on the Saturday night that attracted my attention.

Cross-examined by MR. MUIR. I gave the envelope to Mr. Elliott about nine a.m. on Sunday—the seal was then unbroken—I do not know any of the Browns or Tagg—I know the refinery nearest the office, and where the furnaces are—if I was near the furnaces I could hear any noise like smashing up a lock with a crowbar or hammer quite plainly—I was at the front entrance gate; I have a sort of box close by the gate—that is rather nearer the refinery than the furnaces are, and I could hear more plainly there any smashing-up of iron—I did not hear it—I was awake all night—I did not sleep at all, neither Saturday night nor Sunday morning—I was perfectly sober—my hearing is quite perfect, I think.

Cross-examined by MR. SHERWOOD. I cannot say whether White brought me beer before or after I had been home to supper—as a rule he went out every night to his supper—he went at all times; there was no pet time for him to go out—it was in the usual course of things for him to go out about the same time to his meals—I did not notice how long he was away; there was nothing to strike my attention—he went in and out alone in the usual way—I did not see him with anybody near the gate—I asked him to bring in some beer; he did not take a can with him—he was away about half an hour perhaps; that was not an extra long time—I cannot say how far he lived away—he was scarcely ever off the premises, as he was supposed to be about there within call—I exchanged duties with Bamford on this night—I did his spell as well as my own—I relieved him, and owing to our arrangement I remained on duty till six o'clock on Sunday night instead of coming off at six on Saturday night—doing thirty-six hours from Saturday morning till Sunday night is not the usual arrangement—I do not think it ever happened
See original

before; but it was the beanfeast time, and I did not go to the beanfeast, and I did it to oblige Bamford, who did not go to the beanfeast, but elsewhere—as far as I know, it was done that ho might take a holiday—no foreman was there on the Saturday night—it was a usual thing for me to leave a fireman watching for me while I was away—I had instructions to leave a man on the gate while I went to supper—that was the only time I went off the premises—with the exception of three-quarters of an hour I was there the whole time, and I never went to sleep, and nothing attracted my attention, and I heard no noise—when I went away for the three-quarters of an hour I left Larkin to look after the gate—so far as I know he kept my post while I was away—I did not leave my post vacant and go away for any distance at any other time; not for a moment—at twelve o'clock I was there on duty—about midnight White came to me from the wharf for a drink of water in the ordinary kind of way—he often came and paid me visits and had little chats—he had no conversation with me then as to the noise of the works—fitters were repairing something in the boiler-house that Saturday night—two of De Ritter's fitters came at nine p.m. on the Saturday—I let them in after I came back from supper, and they were there all night—I let them out about nine next morning; they had finished then, they told me—when White came to me at midnight, he came alone in the ordinary way from the wharf—we had no conversation about the men at work on the boilers—I could hear them hammering the boilers—that noise continued throughout the night—it did not make much noise, but I could hear it—I had an ordinary chat with him; he was there half an hour, perhaps—it was unusual; I never had anything to say to him as a rule—I have talked to him before for twenty minutes or half an hour, but it was rather a long conversation on this occasion as the men had gone to their beanfeast—I did not hear any noise while he was talking to me at that time; the fitters were at work at the time.

Re-examined. As a rule, I had nothing to say to White; he passed in and out, and I never had anything to say to any of them—I paid for the beer he got me on this night, and he also gave me some beer which I did not pay for—I did go away at eleven o'clock—I went as far as Garvel Street, West India Road—I went home with my wife—I live at Penny Fields—I went away from the gate at eleven p.m. with my wife, as she was not well—she brought me some ale—I was away ten or fifteen minutes—I don't know if two firemen got in while I was away—I did not let them in.

GEORGE THOMAS LARKIN . I am a furnaceman in Lock and Lancaster's employment—on Saturday night, 28th July, I went on duty a little after six—I found Woodcock on the works—I left the premises about 11.30 that night with Woodcock—we went to the corner of the public-house but did not go in—we came back to the works about 11.40—we knocked to be let in, but got no answer—after waiting about two minutes, or a little longer, we kicked with our feet, and then I climbed over the gate—there was no one in the watchbox—I opened the gate, and let Woodcock in—the gate has a little gate inside it which opens with a spring—I remember De Ritter's men working at the boilers—I let in a stranger—I have seen him this morning, he is Ennever—I let him in about eight, when I was in charge of the gate, after Holtoun had gone to supper—I had no idea
See original

who Ennever was then—I am sure he is the man I let in—he asked to see White—shortly after Holtoun came and relieved me—after I climbed over the gate at eleven, and let Woodcock in, I went towards the works to get my supper, and I heard someone knock at the gate—I did not see Woodcock open the gate—I and Woodcock left the works at six next morning—Woodcock was with me during the night—at six next morning, when we left, the other shift came on—Holtoun was still at the gate then.

NEHEMIAH WOODCOCK . I am a furnaceman, employed by Lock and Lancaster—on this Saturday evening I was there with Larkin—about 11.15 p.m. I heard the noise of the people coming back from the beanfeast and came out of the premises; Larkin came out just before me—we came back together, and Larkin got over the gate (as the watchman was somewhere outside) and let me in—after that I heard the watchman knocking at the gate and let him in—I was in Larkin's company all that fright, and left with him next morning at six.

PHILIP ELLIOTT . I am a foreman in Lock and Lancaster's employ—on 28th July, between 7.30 and eight a.m. the doors of No. 2 refinery were all right—I was only there for a few minutes that day—on that Saturday another foreman (Howe) went to Clacton, and did not come back till Monday—he had leave—I returned between eight and nine a.m. on Sunday—I had no occasion to go into No. 2 refinery—I passed the doors and noticed nothing—I came on duty at midnight on Sunday—the fitters had finished, and men were cleaning the boilers—I went almost all over the place—I got the office key on Sunday morning in an envelope, pealed up, from the gate—the office door was all right on the Sunday morning, and so were the outside doors of the strong room, as far as I could see; I put my hand against them to see they were all safe—I had no occasion to go into the refinery till about two a.m. on Monday morning—I then noticed the middle door leading into the engine-house from the refinery was open—I tried the padlock on the strong room and found it broken, it came away into my hands; it had just been hung into the snag again—I went to the office and got the safe key and other keys; they were where I expected to find them, in a coat pocket, hung up in the office—I found the safe key would not go into the lock—I pulled the strong room door and found it came open—looking into the strong room I missed four blocks of silver like the two produced—the door of the strong room is iron—I saw no marks on that door, apart from the lock—the furnacemen who were working on the Saturday night would be close against No. 1 refinery, a considerable distance from No. 2—the men who worked at the boilers were at the other end; they would have no access to the refinery.

Cross-examined by MR. MUIR. When I received the key in the envelope between 8.30 and nine on the Sunday morning I looked at the envelope; the seal and envelope seemed to be all right—I took the key out then—I kept the key till I went to the refinery at two a.m. on Monday—on two or three previous occasions I had had the key handed to me in an envelope in that way—I at once went into the office on receiving the key—the watchman's box is almost directly opposite the office door—I have had occasion to go to the refinery, and use the keys at night time—we always keep a little gas alight in the office—you go up three or four steps to the office
See original

which is on the ground floor—there are no curtains to the window, and if anyone looked through the window they could see me go to the cupboard where the keys of the safe were—if the watchman, whose box overlooks the office, were looking he would have the opportunity of seeing me go and get the keys of the safe—there are shutters half way up the window, but a person could look over the shutters—on receiving the keys on the Sunday morning I went to the office and took the keys from the coat in the wardrobe.

Cross-examined by MR. SHERWOOD. I should think each block of silver would weigh 1 1/4 cwt. or a little more—four of the ten were taken—they were carried into the strong room hot and dropped on the floor anyhow—the wooden shutters to the office window only go half way up the window—anyone standing on the steps and looking over the shutters would be able to see what I was doing in the office, and see me going to the wardrobe and taking out the keys—it was broad daylight when I got the keys—I went back and put the keys back in the same place within half an hour—at night the works are lit by a good gas light—I did not get the keys to see if the place was safe; I went to look at one of the fires in the refinery—I did not pay periodical visits to the strong room during the night—having found out that something was wrong, I looked a second time and counted to see what was missing—I was two or three minutes at the strong room, and soon found out that something was missing—I had a light from the engine-house—I locked the place up and reported the loss—I went home a little after six, and then came back about the time I thought the manager would be there—when I found at two a.m. on Monday that the safe had been entered, I told my fellow foreman to let the managers know as soon as they came; and when I came back the managers were there before me—I do not recollect seeing White on Sunday during the daytime—he may have assisted me once or twice on Sunday morning.

T. W. J. HALLETT. Re-examined). I gave the key to Holtoun in one of the ordinary office envelopes, sealed with the firm's seal and wax—the envelopes and seal were in the office, not locked up—I addressed the envelope to Mr. Elliott—anyone having the office key could get into the office and reseal the envelope, but the foreman would understand if the direction were in any other writing.

PHILIP ELLIOTT . Re-called). The envelope in which I got the key was addressed to me in Hallett's writing, so far as I could say, and the seal was all right.

T. W. J. HALLETT. Re-examined). The manager, Mr. Borden, lives at the office—he was away on a holiday at the time—I believe a maid-servant and a relative of Mr. Borden were there—the office window was fastened by an ordinary catch.

GEORGE COWLEY . I am a stoker in the employ of Lock and Lancaster—on Sunday morning, 29th July, I was working there—at eleven p.m. I went into the engine-room which adjoins No. 2 refinery, and noticed this padlock on the ground, five or six inches from the door-post—it is a padlock which ought to have been on the refinery door—the door of the refinery was open a few inches—I did not suspect anything at the moment—I picked up the padlock, and put it in the staple—Mr. Elliott afterwards spoke to me.
See original

JOHN GIBBONS . I live at Bow, and am a locksmith employed by Messrs. Chubb—I have examined this lock which was on the strong room—it is a Chubb's latch-lock, and is usually used for a street-door; it is not fit for an iron door, and a great blunder was made by the person who fixed it on the door—it is a five lever—we have a different class of lock for an iron door—the lock is very much broken, I should say with a hammer and chisel—I think it must have been opened with this key, and then afterwards broken with hammer and chisel—to break a lock, to the extent this was broken, in the door first would have left considerable marks on the door—that would be the case if it was an iron door—the damage must have been done after the door was opened—I saw a short jemmy found there—I think the lock first had a blow with a hammer; there are marks of a hammer on the bolt-head, and again on the far end of the lock, then the jemmy would be used—the lock was still on the door when I saw it—I was shown a piece of the lock at the Police-court—these two padlocks are very common ones—a skeleton key would fit this one; the other is a lever and could not be opened by a skeleton key—the key to one of Chubb's locks will not fit any other; with ordinary lever locks the same key may fit other locks.

Cross-examined by MR. MUIR. Mr. Hallett showed me a padlock in the refinery, on the strong-room door at Messrs. Lock and Lancaster's, which, in my opinion, had been opened by a key, and not forced open—that padlock was securing the doors then; although the main lock was broken, the padlock was still in use.

Cross-examined by MR. SHERWOOD. A padlock was in use; the door was closed, but could not be fastened.

JOHN WILLIAM ENNEVER . I live at 31, Northey Street, Limehouse, and am a bargeman—White is a friend of mine—we worked together for Mr. Drew, a lighterman—on 28th July, about 8.30 p.m., I went to look for White at Lock and Lancaster's premises, as I had certain written orders for him from our employer for work for the same evening—I knocked at the gate from the Bridge Road for about a quarter of an hour, and then Lark in let me in—I found the gateman was not there—I went clown the road inside, and turned off, and went over the coals, and got down to the wharf—I called for White three or four times, and looked for him on the barges, but could not find him—I returned towards the gate, and when I got near the gate, I saw White about five yards from the gate—he had what appeared to be blotches of whitewash on his clothes; on the front and back, too—I gave him the written orders, and went out of the works with him—there was then no one at the gate—that would be about nine—we shut the gate behind us—we went to the West India Dock Bridge, and I left him going over the bridge to get down on to his barge—I said nothing to him, nor he to me, about the marks on his coat.

Cross-examined by MR. SHERWOOD. Mr. Drew does a good deal of business—White would have to guard and be responsible for very valuable property at times—that night he had about fourteen barges there loaded with silver lead; I had seen them—I was in and out the barges, when he was on duty there—I have on several occasions to go with written orders for him, at all hours—I should say he has been with Mr. Drew three or four years—he is a married man with three children
See original

—he lives at 43, Park Street, Limehouse—I had not been before that evening with orders—I am a lighterman's labourer—I have been employed by Mr. Drew just on four years—I met White just inside the gate—I was with him about five minutes—I did not notice his coat particularly—I was not struck by the marks—some of the barges were whitewashed, and you get marks of it on your coat, because you chuck your coat anywhere when you have work to do—these marks looked like blotches of white-wash, as if it was wash which had dried on—it was an oldish coat—the marks looked as if they might have been on for three or four days or a week.

Re-examined. I saw White on the Sunday; he was wearing the same coat; the white marks were on it then—that was the last time I saw him—I saw the patches of white as I walked to him; you could not help seeing them—I did not mention it to the police till the week afterwards.

By the COURT. It would be part of his duty to go about the barges, and go down and count every barrel, and see that everything was there—Mr. Drew is having all the barges whitewashed now.

By MR. SHERWOOD. The police came to me and asked me questions, and I made a statement—I was asked if there was white on his coat, and and I told Inspector Hellish about it.

WILLIAM BAYARD . I am a foreman in the East and West India Dock Company's employ—I have charge of the boat slip adjoining the prosecutors' work—sclose up to the slip are the coal stores, and at the top of the slip are gates leading into the Bridge Road—the gates are fastened by a bar and padlock—on Saturday afternoon, 28th July, the gates were safely locked—there would be no one there on watch on that Saturday night.

Cross-examined by MR. SHERWOOD. The padlock that was broken was a common one fastened to the bar of the gate, and lock and hasp were broken off—the constable found the gate open.

JOHN WILLIAM WOOD . London and India Dock Policeman, 137). At one p.m. on Sunday, 29th July, my attention was attracted to the gate leading from the Bridge Road to the slip, and I found the staple had been forced, and the padlock broken—the bar was lying on the ground.

GEORGE MELLISH . (Inspector, K). On Monday morning, 30th July, this matter was put into my hands, and I made inquiries with regard to it—I was present when the strong room was examined, and saw Sergeant Dicker pick up this button from the floor inside the strong room—we found the lock of the safe broken inside, and a portion of it outside—from that I infer that the lock was broken after the door had been opened; it lay on the strap of the stretcher with which the workmen use to carry the hot blocks of metal; it was lying about three yards from the door—the padlock was also broken—on the Monday morning I took a statement in writing from White, which I produce—I examined all the workmen to find the truth—I said to White, "We are police-officers; I wish to have a statement from you as to your movements on the Saturday and Sunday," and he made this statement, and I think he signed it. (Read: "I started work on Friday, six p.m., watching six of Mr. Drew's barges. All of them were moored to the wharf. Sometimes I sit on the wharf, at others on the craft. At eight p.m. I went through the works, out the gate, home to supper. I returned at 8.45. I then remained on the wharf and

the craft till 6.30 a.m., Saturday. I went out with George Goodchild and another lighterman; had a drink at the Union public-house. We all three at once returned. Goodchild and the other man then left by the tug Renown. The man whose name I do not know had come in by the gate. He asked me out to have the drink. When going out of the gate we met Goodchild, and asked him to come back with us. He did so. I then left the gate about 7.10, Saturday morning. There was nothing unusual on the wharf or about the craft on Friday night. I returned to work at 2.30 p.m, Saturday. Met my mate, J. Hawkins. He asked me out to have a drink. We went into the Union; had some ale. We were away about ten minutes. While at the Union we heard the whistle of the Renown blown; hurried back; Hawkins went home. On reaching the wharf I found the Renown had brought in two barges. I moored them. The tug went away, and brought more barges. Shortly after Jack Hannaway brought me my orders to go into the West India Dock to bring out the barge Trowbridge. I did so, bringing her alongside the wharf at nine p.m. I stayed till 10.30 p.m., then left by the gate; went to the Union; had refreshment; returned at 10.50 p.m.; Holtoun let me in. When I left at 10.30 Larkin was at the gate with him; when I returned Holtoun was by himself. When I left about 8.30 p.m. Mrs. Holtoun was in the box talking to him; she had brought him his food. This was the only occasion I saw her on Saturday night. When I returned at 10.50 I went on the craft, and remained there till 12.30 a.m., Sunday. I came up the yard to the water-pipe near the watch-box, I then spoke to Holtoun. I heard a row outside the gate. Neither Holtoun nor myself went outside, but, looking through the pigeon-hole, I saw that there were three persons—two males, one female. One was the man we call Jerry, a labourer in the firm; the other man and his wife. I could not catch what the quarrel was about. The three went in the direction of Millwall. I returned to the craft, remained there till about three a.m., then came up the yard, went up on the stage, and spoke to both Larkin and Woodcock. We were speaking about them having their work well forward. I stayed with them about forty minutes on and off. I then went back to the craft, pumped the barges out, came back into the yard at 4.55 a.m., spoke to Larkin and Woodcock, went to the gate, spoke to Holtoun, and went out to the coffee-shop in Emmot Street; it was not open. I walked about Three Colt Street till 5.30; then met a lighterman, who told me he had picked up one of Mr. Creed's barges adrift. While we were talking, the man who used to work for the Regent's Canal Company at the little lock came up and joined us. We then went into the coffee-shop; had breakfast They stopped at the coffee-shop. I returned to the yard; was admitted by Holtoun. This was just after six a.m. Larkin and Woodcock were then about to leave the yard. I went to the barges, connected the spelter and bars of lead, came back to the gate, met Speed coming in, returned to the furnaces with Speed, walked round the yard, and about 8.30 a.m. Mr. Elliott and Mr. Tyler came in and Webb. I assisted them to lift the test into the furnace. This brought us on to nine a.m., Sunday. I then left the yard. Holtoun was still at the gate. I went to the Burdett Road, and returned to the yard at 10.45 a.m. I passed through the gate. Holtoun was at the gate. I stopped in the works and the craft till 8.50 p.m., Sunday; left for ten minutes, went to City Arms, had a drink,

returned to the premises, and stayed till 7 a.m., Monday. I left the gates. Holtoun was then on duty. I heard no unusual noise on any night. Any noise can be easily heard. My wife called and kicked at the gate about 11.30 p.m., Saturday. This could be easily heard. De Hitter's men were working all night in the boiler-house Saturday night. During my employment at the firm I have not at any time been in this first refinery room, except on one occasion about five or six weeks ago. This was when I assisted Elliott, Bamford, Webb, and Tyler. I don't know where the safe is. I do not know where the silver is kept.—(Signed) GEORGE WILLIAM WHITE.")—from the 30th July I was making inquiries with reference to this robbery, assisted by other members of the force—at the time White made this statement I asked him to take his coat off; he did so, and I have it here—I saw that two buttons were off the coat—I asked him to leave the room, while I and Mr. Hallett examined it—when he was afterwards arrested, on 15th August, I saw that three buttons were off, and only one left—he was not wearing this coat then; I found it in his house—he was wearing it when the statement was made, and it was returned to him without comment—I did not tell him that a button was found in the refinery—on Sunday morning, 5th August, I called at his house and said to him, "I have called respecting the statement you made on Monday; some of the silver has been traced and recovered; you will now be detained, pending inquiries"—he made no reply—he was not charged at that time—I took him to the Police-station—I there examined the coat, and I said, "White, when I took your examination on Monday there were two buttons on it, there is only one now"—he said, "Yes, one came off yesterday"—I said, "When we examined the safe on Monday we found a button inside, and on comparing it with your coat, we found it matched"—he said, "You know there are more buttons than one, sir"—that was all he said—when I first saw the coat, on 30th July, I did not notice any marks of white upon it, nor on his arrest—he was charged about a quarter to seven on that night, with Henry Brown and Tagg, who had been previously arrested and detained in the waiting-room—Henry Brown sent me a message—I went to him—he said he wished to show me where some of the silver was buried, and to make a statement—I took him to 28, Salter Street, Limehouse—that would be between 500 or 600 yards from the prosecutors' premises—it is a dwelling-house in the occupation of the father of the Browns, a builder—adjoining the dwelling-house there is a railway arch, used as a workshop, leased with the house, and forming part of it—the soils live in the house and the father lives somewhere else—going to the house with Henry Brown we passed through it into the railway arch, and he pointed out a place to me; some police officers were already there—on digging at the place pointed out one of these blocks of silver was taken out; it was in about the centre of the arch—one piece had been already found in the same arch, and was then at the Police-station—on finding the second piece I went back with Henry Brown to the Police-station, and he then made a statement which I took down, and he signed it—I witnessed it—this is it. (Read: "The statement that I now make is a voluntary one. My name is Henry Richard Brown. I live at 28, Salter Street, Lime-house. I also work there for my father. About ten a.m. on Sunday, 29th July, 1894, Walter Tagg and I were standing at door of my father's

workshop; the door is in South Street. Two labouring looking men came up pulling a costermonger's barrow. The tallest tapped me on the shoulder, and said, 'Hi, cock, do you mind putting this under the ground in the shop for a few days, and we will call for it some day next week.' I said, 'What stuff is it?' I lifted a cement sack which was on the barrow, and then saw the two blocks of metal. I said, 'What is this?' he said, 'It is only some lead.' I said, 'It is funny-looking lead.' I felt it, and found that it was too hard for lead. I said, 'It is too brittle for lead.' He said, 'Oh, it is all right, it is only a kind of pewter mixed with it; that's what makes it look so brittle.' Each of the men then carried one of the blocks into the shop, and dropped them on the ground. The tall man then gave me a sovereign, and said, 'Here, cock, take this; give your mate half; we will spare you more next week when we come for it.' I then dug a hole in the ground immediately under the doorway of an inner door, and rolled the block over and over into the hole. Tagg helped me to dig the hole. When I was covering the block over with earth, the tall man said, 'That's not deep enough.' Tagg then went on to the w.c. I then tilted the block out of the hole, and dug it deeper. The hole was then about two feet deep. The tall man said, 'That will do.' I then tilted the block into the hole again, and shovelled the earth over it, and two pieces of stone slabs on top. The man then got some sand that was in the shop; the sand was wet. He got a trowel from the bench, and with it he pressed the sand round the stones, and shook some cement from our bags over the sand and stones, so as to make it set hard, and not look suspicious. He then said, 'Bury this one over in that corner,' pointing to near my father's tool chest. I said, 'No, I won't put it there, it is too near my father's tool chest. If anything is wrong they would blame ray father for it.' The little one said, 'Come to that you can put it inside the chest; there is no harm in it; nobody will come here for it.' I said, 'No, I will put it down here; if you don't like that you can take it away again.' He said, 'Oh, all right, put it there then.' I then dug the second hole nearly in the centre of the shop, and tilted the block into it, covered it over with the earth, and trod it down. The tall man then said, 'Now, mind what I have told you; if you tell anybody, don't you put your foot outside the door no more, because I know you.' He then said to the other man, 'Come on, Jim let us clear away sharp.' He said to me, 'Good morning, cock; shut the door after us.' They then left the shop, and pushed the barrow down the street. Between the time of digging the first hole and the second I went to the Warrior beer-house, Limehouse Causeway. The man we call Pooley was standing at the door. I asked him for change of the sovereign. He gave me silver. I went back, and gave Tagg ten shillings. He said, 'Do you think it is all right?' 'I said,' I don't know what to think shan't tell father.' I have not seen the men since, but I had seen the tall man previously about Lime house Pier. I first heard of the silver being stolen on Thursday, and then thought that what we had buried in the shop was the silver. When I saw the reward bills on Saturday, I said to Tagg, 'That's right enough, that's them what we have got under there,' speaking of the two blocks. Tagg then said, 'I'll have nothing to do with it.' The police came at 3.30 a.m. this day, and arrested Tagg, my brother-in-law, Andrew Street, my two brothers, Samuel and Alfred, and myself.
See original

Sergeant Lambert told me I was arrested, concerned in stealing the silver. I made no reply. What I have now said is the truth. I have said this to clear my father and brothers, because they know nothing about it. The description of the men is as follows:—First: Age forty to forty-five; height five feet ten inches; complexion, hair, moustache and side whiskers dark; dress, cord trousers and vest, black diagonal cloth coat turning green, P. and O. peak cap broken in two, heavy boots, dirty appearance. Second: Age, twenty-five; height, five feet seven inches; complexion and small moustache, fair; hair, brown; dress, grey trousers, melton coat and vest, heavy boots, black felt hat, respectable appearance. (Signed) H. Brown.")—This was on the Sunday night—he was not alone when he made it—I think other officers were in the room—on the Monday Tagg desired to make a statement—he did so, and I took it down, and produce it. (Read: "The statement that I now make is a voluntary one. My name is Walter Tagg. I have been sleeping at 28, Salter Street, for about one week. On Sunday, 29th July, 1894, about 10 a.m., Henry Brown and myself were standing at the gate of the shop in South Street. Two men came up with a barrow, and said, 'Cock, do you want to earn a sovereign?' We said, 'What for?' The tallest man said, "To hide this away for us.' I said to Henry, 'Shall I dig a hole?' Henry said, 'Yes,' and we both helped to dig a hole under the doorway. We then dug another near the grindstone. I went to the w.c. I could just see the corner of one of the blocks of metal under a sack on the barrow. When I returned from the w.c. I saw that the barrow was empty, and that both holes had been filled in. I saw one of the men give Henry the sovereign. He ran up the Causeway to change it, He came back, and gave me half a sovereign in gold. On leaving the yard they both said, 'We will come back next week for the stuff. Keep it quiet; don't tell anyone; we will give you another sovereign when we come for the stuff.' They then went away. I changed my half-sovereign at the Sports public-house when they opened at one p.m.; Henry and I went in together. We each had half a pint of ale. I have not seen the men since. I had never seen them before. I did not know about the robbery of the silver till I saw the reward bill up in Single's window in Limehouse Causeway. I read the bill, and it then came into my head that the stuff that the men brought to the shed was the silver that had been stolen. I went to 28, Salter Street, saw Henry, told him that I had seen the reward bill about some stolen silver, and that I thought that the stuff we had in the shed was the silver. We never said anything to anybody about it. When the men brought it they told us it was lead. We then thought there was no harm in it. When I was arrested I did not tell the police about it. The description of the men is as follows:—First: Age, about thirty; height, five feet eleven inches; complexion, hair and moustache, dark. I cannot say how he was dressed. He had a dirty appearance. Second: Age, about twenty-six; height, five feet six inches; complexion, hair and slight moustache, fair. I did not notice his dress. He had the appearance of a labourer. I was working nearly all last week as a labourer for Mr. Brown, sen. (Signed) WALTER TAGG. Witness, George Mellish, Inspector)"—On Monday, 6th August, the five prisoners were all charged with stealing and receiving this silver—when it was read over, White said to me, "What about the gateman?
See original

Ain't you going to fetch any more in? What business had he in the Railway Tavern at eleven on Saturday night, when the two furnacemen had to get over the gate?"—that was all he said—I saw no button similar to the one found in the safe among the workmen at the prosecutors' premises—the father of the Browns was taken into custody on Sunday morning, the 5th, and was detained for some time in the same waiting-room as the three sons and Tagg—he was afterwards taken before the Magistrate and discharged—there was a formal remand for a week—he was on bail, then the case against him was withdrawn.

Cross-examined by MR. MUIR. Andrew Street, who married Brown's, daughter, and lived in the same house with Brown and Tagg, was also taken into custody—he was not charged, only detained on Sunday and part of Monday—during the Sunday I believe Brown, the father, and the three sons, and Tagg and Street were all detained in the same room—they were there that night; they had no beds, only chairs and tables—there was nothing against Street, except the fact of his living in this house—I did not arrest him—on the Monday I saw them all together in the waiting-room—they were charged on Monday evening, about seven or eight, I should think—I think it was earlier than a quarter of an hour before midnight—before they were charged Tagg made his statement—Henry Brown made his statement in my official room, to which other persons are not invited except by my wish—none of the other prisoners were present—Tagg made his statement in the same room; no other prisoner was present—I wrote down both statements—I asked them questions in the course of their statements—Henry is about eighteen years old, Alfred and Tagg about twenty, and Samuel twenty-three.

Wright, Clarissa Dickson (1947–2014), cook and television presenter, was born on 24 June 1947 at the London Clinic, 20 Devonshire Place, London, the youngest of four children (three daughters and one son) of Arthur (Dicky) Dickson Wright (1897–1976), a prominent surgeon whose patients included the Queen Mother, and his wife (Aileen Mary) Molly, née Bath (1908–1975), an Australian heiress. At the time of her birth registration her parents lived at 46 Circus Road, St John’s Wood, London. Her father was born in Rathmines, co. Dublin. His parents were of the Irish Protestant ascendancy, then joined the Plymouth Brethren and said they had moved to Scotland to avoid Roman Catholics, though he married Molly Bath at the Church of St Pierre of Chaillot in Paris in 1927. Molly Wright’s father, Tom H. Bath, was born in Cornwall, went to Australia as a mining engineer, and then took the family to Malaya and Singapore. The procedure for choosing Clarissa’s first name, she claimed, was that ‘They blindfolded my mother and turned her loose in the library, where she pulled out a copy of Richardson’s Clarissa’ (Dickson Wright, 20). She also later recorded that she had been named Clarissa Teresa Philomena Aileen Mary Josephine Agnes Elsie Trilby Louise Esmerelda Dickson Wright, though only the name Clarissa appears on her birth certificate.
Clarissa Dickson Wright herself adopted the double surname (sometimes hyphenated); her father, she said, ‘turned down repeated offers of a knighthood because … he had worked very hard to acquire the surgeon’s right to be called Mr Wright’ (Dickson Wright, 1). She also said her mother had told her that she ‘was conceived in a bath in Norfolk in September 1946’, and claimed she’d been a ‘nasty shock to everyone’, being thirteen years younger than the next youngest child, Anthony (ibid., 1). She also suggested that her father was responsible for transmitting ‘the alcoholic gene’ to her (ibid., 2), and that he suffered from an irascible temper, and was violent, regularly battering her mother, brother, and herself, although one year after Clarissa’s death her elder sister, Heather, denied these charges in an interview, saying, ‘He never hit any of us. He sometimes had a temper, but he wasn’t violent’ (Daily Mail, 4 Apr 2015).
When Clarissa was three months old, the family moved to 39 Circus Road, where she remained for the next twenty-eight years. The house, built in 1809, consisted of nine bedrooms, a library, a drawing room, a gallery, four cellars, a large servants’ sitting room, a covered loggia, and three-quarters of an acre of garden. Among the visitors were Yehudi Menuhin, who stood on his head to amuse the youngest child, Philip Harben, Harry Secombe, and Audrey Pleydell-Bouverie, who detailed the purported sexual means by which Mrs Simpson captured Edward VIII. In the early 1950s Clarissa flew with her mother and father to Singapore, the first journey she could remember, and her memories were entirely of the food, except for the bottle of crème de menthe from which she took a daily sip until the cook, Ah Poo, was sacked ‘for lying about taking the stuff. I owned up and he was reinstated’ (Dickson Wright, 26–7). The journey continued to Australia, and she was sent briefly to the Loreto Convent at Ballarat, where her mother had been a pupil. The following year the family went to Brazil. On the boat there, she was induced to masturbate a steward: ‘I found this fascinating’ (ibid., 27). She told her mother, who wisely ‘made no fuss to me, so I suffered no trauma, the man was taken off the ship and my mother gently explained that some things were only for grown-ups. I was therefore’, she claimed, ‘unharmed by the experience’ (ibid., 27–8). She was a sickly child, by her own account, and once had an ear infection so severe that it would not respond to penicillin, and she was told that if the infection burst ‘I would die and if they operated I would possibly be totally deaf’. The day before the scheduled surgery, her mother placed on her ear ‘a relic of Blessed Martin de Porres, the black Brazilian Dominican monk’. She was pleased that her complete recovery was ‘one of the miracles that contributed to the final canonisation of St Martin … My mother and I went to Lima for the canonisation ceremony’ (ibid., 36–7).
At the age of eleven, Clarissa was sent to the Sacred Heart Convent at Hove, where she loved boarding, and got on well with the nuns. She was intelligent, did well academically, and was captain of games—playing lacrosse, cricket (in which she later qualified as an umpire), and tennis. She rode, hunted, and, having to resit her Latin A levels at Woldingham School, Surrey, for two terms, became addicted to the pipe she learned to smoke for a school play. Her father was determined that his daughter should study medicine, and refused to help with the career she chose. Forced to stay at home, she studied for the Bar at Gray’s Inn and did an external law degree at University College, London. Passing her Bar exams at twenty-one (the minimum age at the time), she was the youngest female barrister at that date and remained so until the minimum age for taking the exams was removed in 2009. She did her pupillage in a general common law chambers headed by Neil Taylor, shared in some courtroom successes, got a tenancy in chambers, and was praised by Lord Denning. She enjoyed an active sex life, on one occasion with an MP she does not name ‘behind the Speaker’s Chair in the House of Commons during the summer vacation’ (Dickson Wright, 88–9). At home her still-young mother gave dinner parties, though without a cook, as her father balked at paying maintenance and her mother’s inheritance was still tied up in the courts. Her mother turned out to be a good cook, and Clarissa then determined to learn to cook herself.
In 1973 Clarissa’s father had a series of strokes in South Africa, but was brought back to the Lindo wing of his own hospital, St Mary’s, Paddington, and lived on for another three years, while her mother died in June 1975. Clarissa inherited her entire estate of £2.8 million. She had to go to Australia and the Far East to sort out the estate, and came back to face the first of her bankruptcies, turning on the £1000 bill for the funeral champagne. In view of her expected inheritance, she was not actually insolvent; and eventually the bankruptcy was annulled and she was allowed to return to chambers. In short order she discovered the pleasures of chartering a yacht in the Caribbean and of London’s all-day drinking clubs. Her intake rose to two bottles of gin a day, plus the half-bottle of vodka to help her get out of bed. She had the great love affair of her life, with ‘Clive’, a Lloyds underwriter who was also an alcoholic. In 1983 she was finally disbarred. By the age of forty she had spent her riches, was homeless, and sleeping rough.
Dickson Wright was able to find the odd job as a cook, but by April 1987 she had been to Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, acknowledged her addictions to alcohol and nicotine, and took herself to Robert Lefever’s Promis rehabilitation clinic in Kent. She also discovered the Portobello Road cookery bookshop, Books for Cooks, where she found her vocation, and settled down and worked through the late 1980s and 1990s, until she had a falling-out with the owner, Heidi Lascelles. During this time she made her first television appearance, with Sophie Grigson in an episode of Grigson’s Eat Your Greens, directed by Patricia Llewellyn. Moving to Scotland, she was happy to find friends and patrons.
In 1994 Llewellyn had an idea for a television series, and rang Dickson Wright: ‘Do you know Jennifer Paterson?’ (Dickson Wright, 230). They had indeed met once, in Tuscany, with Lascelles. Over lunch in London, ‘when Pat told us her idea, that we should go around the country cooking from a motorbike and sidecar, Jennifer and I fell about laughing’ (ibid.). She, and her equally plummy-voiced co-presenter, Jennifer Paterson, nevertheless achieved fame late in life for the television cookery programme, Two Fat Ladies, which aired on the BBC for four series, from 9 October 1996 (when she was forty-nine and Paterson sixty-eight) until 28 September 1999, with frequent repeats.
Jennifer Mary Paterson (1928–1999), cook and television presenter, was born on 3 April 1928 in a nursing home at 33 Redcliffe Gardens, Kensington, London, though ‘I was conceived in China and went back there at three months’ (The Times, 11 Aug 1999), living there to the age of five, as her father, Robert Edward Michael Paterson (d. 1964), an army officer in the Seaforth highlanders in both world wars, was then working in China for the Asiatic Petroleum Company. Her mother, Josephine Mary Antonia, née Bartlett (1898–1986), was the sister of Monsignor Francis Bartlett, senior priest at Westminster Cathedral, and of Anthony Bartlett, who ran his family’s well-known shop, the Art and Book Company, specializing in church decorating, a few feet away from the cathedral’s great west door.
Paterson said she was expelled, aged fifteen, from her school, the Convent of the Assumption, Ramsgate. At sixteen she was working at an assistant stage manager at the Windsor Repertory Theatre, but soon set off on her travels, spending two years in Berlin (where her father’s military career took the family) before accepting a post teaching English in Portugal; she lived subsequently in Venice (with her family) and Sicily. Returning to England in 1952, she was briefly resident matron at Padworth College in Berkshire, followed by an equally brief time as cook to the Ugandan legation in London. She worked backstage on some early Candid Camera programmes with Jonathan Routh, who hosted her famously raucous forty-fifth birthday party in 1973, in the Sloane Street flat he shared with the wealthy heiress Olga Deterding. The police who raided the party were startled that so many of the guests were clergy. Though Jennifer was to be seen at all the smartest parties, whizzing to them on her motorbike, she was desperately poor, often living out of a strapped-on suitcase. ‘In the 1960s’, she said, ‘I was often short of money and sometimes even without a roof over my head, but I was never without a glass of champagne and a party invitation’ (The Guardian, 11 Aug 1999). From about 1980 onwards, she lived with her uncle Anthony at 180A Ashley Gardens, in London.
In the late 1970s Paterson began cooking the Thursday lunches at the Spectator magazine in Doughty Street, where she also acted as hostess, cooking for, among many others, Graham Greene, the Prince of Wales, Enoch Powell, Alger Hiss, and Barry Humphries, who is said to have left the table as himself, and returned in full drag as Dame Edna Everage, to the consternation of fellow guest Spiro Agnew. Paterson had a temper as short as her co-star-to-be, and in 1984, finding her Spectator kitchen untidy, she threw the crockery out of the window, for which she was relieved of her cooking duties but given a successful recipe column. She dressed always in a flowing smock, with a packet of Woodbine cigarettes in one pocket and a flask of whisky in the other. Her nails were luridly painted, and her fingers be-ringed—to such an extent that there were complaints about hygiene when she cooked for the cameras. She had a saint for every occasion, and, in her deep bass voice, endorsed St Rita for lost objects and St Joseph ‘for general purposes’ (The Independent, 11 Aug 1999). She seemed to have no romantic life, but relished her reputation as a ‘fag hag’, and insisted that homosexuality lost its glamour ‘when they made it legal’ (ibid.).
Two Fat Ladies brought these two stout and formidable women cooks together, Paterson driving the Triumph Thunderbird motorbike with Dickson Wright in the double-width sidecar, and the number-plate ‘N88 TFL’, ‘Number 88’ being the bingo-caller’s ‘two fat ladies’. Originally there was a script, but Llewellyn quickly saw that they could not and would not speak anyone else’s words—and, in any case, there was no need, since the two’s actual conversation was sufficiently colourful, camp, and funny. Four series were made by Llewellyn’s company, Optomen, with the duo cooking two dishes each at every location—posh hotels, embassies, polo clubs, scout camps, boys’ and girls’ boarding schools, several stately homes, and Winchester Cathedral. Watched by many millions of viewers in the UK, there were equally huge viewing figures in the USA, Australia, and other Commonwealth countries. The cookery books, which accompanied each of the four television series, were Two Fat Ladies: Gastronomic Adventures (With Motorbike and Sidecar) (1996), The Two Fat Ladies Ride Again (1997), The Two Fat Ladies: Full Throttle (1998), and Two Fat Ladies: Obsessions (1999). Paterson also published Feast Days: Recipes from the Spectator (1990), Jennifer’s Diary: The Diary of One Fat Lady (1997), and Seasonal Receipts (1999); and after Paterson’s death Christopher Sinclair-Stevenson edited Enjoy! A Celebration of Jennifer Paterson (2000), with contributions from Dickson Wright, Richard Ingrams, and Ned Sherrin, among others. Dickson Wright published The Haggis: A History (1996), Heiland Foodie (1997), an autobiography, Spilling the Beans (2007), Clarissa’s Comfort Food (2008), Rifling Through My Drawers: My Life in a Year (2009), Potty! Clarissa’s One-Pot Cookbook (2010), A history of English Food (2011), and Clarissa’s England (2012).
Paterson died in London on 10 August 1999, of lung cancer. Dickson Wright made another set of television programmes, Clarissa and the countryman (2000–03), with her hill farmer friend, Sir John (Johnny) Scott, fifth baronet, and devoted the rest of her life to giving her urban self a rural makeover, opposing the anti-hunting brigade and vegetarianism and supporting hare-coursing, local food production, and a diet of red meat, butter, and cream. She was an icon for the Countryside Alliance, spoke at rallies, and adored being the first woman lord rector of Aberdeen University, from 1999 to 2005. In 2003 she filed for bankruptcy, with debts of £90,000, blaming it on two failed business ventures and slow payment by the BBC. She died in the Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh, on 15 March 2014, of hospital-acquired pneumonia and other causes. Her funeral mass was at St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh, on 7 April.

At the time of his death from a gunshot wound, 41-year-old Stephen Lawson was a first-class constable with the Alberta Provincial Police (APP). He was a relatively new member of the force, having joined only six months earlier. He was by no means inexperienced, however, and had served as a police officer for over 10 years, most notably as the chief of police in both Macleod and Fernie, British Columbia. His police career was accompanied by three years of army life in the Fort Garry Horse and actions in WWI for which he received a medal for meritorious service.

When he transferred to the Alberta Provincial Police in 1922, Lawson was assigned to “D” Division, which extended east and west from Lethbridge to the Saskatchewan and British Columbia and south to the United States border. Stationed in Coleman in the Crowsnest Pass, Lawson was in the APP district of Blairmore, home to Emilio Picariello and Florence Lassandro and one of the busiest for illegal liquor traffic.

Lawson's previous police experience in the area was considered highly beneficial, and in a letter written by W.C. Bryan, Superintendent of the Alberta Provincial Police, Lawson was recommended to be “the ideal man for either Coleman or Bellevue . . . as he knows pretty nearly every bootlegger and crook running through the Pass.”

A Masonic-military funeral for Lawson was held in Macleod on September 25, four days after he was shot outside his home in Coleman. Alongside his widow and five children, scores attended the service and in the town flags were flown at half-mast in tribute.


Born in England in 1880, Steven O. Lawson came to Canada in 1903, and went west in the spring of 1904. After trying his hand at ranching, he joined the Macleod police on May 7th, 1907, where he later became chief of police. At the outbreak of war, he enlisted and served overseas. On his discharge, he became police chief of Fernie in 1920 and served with that force until his enlistment in the Alberta Provincial Police on March 12th, 1922.

He was stationed at Coleman, a little mining town west of Blairmore that straddled the main highway used by rumrunners. He was added to the APP as one of fifty men specifically placed to suppress the liquor traffic.

As the story goes, on September 21, 1922, Lawson and his partner received a tip from a stool pigeon that a popular rumrunner named Emilio Picariello - AKA "Mr. Pick" - was going to Fernie for a load of liquor. Another anonymous tip let the APP know that Pick was returning with his load. Constable Lawson observed Pick and his crew going both directions.

With Pick were his mechanic and his son. When they arrived at their hotel, some APP officers were waiting in ambush. The moment Pick was served with a search warrant, he sounded his horn and was off with his crew to go back across the BC border. Waiting in the middle of the road was Constable Lawson.

Pick's son refused to stop for Lawson, so the Constable shot him - in the hand. Later that evening, Pick's son was arrested and held prisoner.

Pick and Florence Lassandro, the wife of an associate, went to confront Lawson. They drove up to the police barracks in Coleman, and Steven Lawson approached them in their car. According to Lassandro's statement to the court, an argument ensued, which turned into a fight.

Pick insisted that Lawson was going to accompany him to retrieve his son from jail. Lawson refused, claiming not to know where the boy was. Pick seized Lawson's gun in order to enforce his command. Lawson resisted. The gun went off several times. Lassandro panicked and shot Lawson. He died a few minutes later.

Emilio Picariello and Florence Lassandro were tried, found guilty and executed on May 3rd, 1923. Florence Lassandro was the first and only woman to be executed in Alberta.
The murder weapon is currently on the third floor of the Glenbow Museum in Calgary Alberta.

# B18. Aikin Hut ( portrait of Wm. Jnr. in situ )

This was the last slab hut remaining in West Pennant Hills when it was moved to the village. It had originally been built by William Aikin to the north of present day Aikin Road in 1875. The Aiken family descended from West-Indian John Aiken who had arrived in 1796, a free man who was a carpenter by trade. He rented a farm near Parramatta and applied for a grant in 1820, which resulted the following year in 30 acres in the Field of Mars being given to him, registered in 1831. He, his wife and children settled in West Pennant Hills as we now know the area, where John built a slab hut. His son William, was killed in an accident in 1869, and William Jnr and brother Charles stayed on the farm with their mother and William married Elizabeth Bowerman, a local girl, in 1875, he built a slab hut on an acre of his mothers land and mainly worked on orchards in the district. He died in 1933.

The area on which John's house was built was known as "Dixieland" a local reference to the Aiken's, both John and probably his wife Frances being coloured, probably from the West Indies and "Dixie Lane" is now Aiken Road.

9876 Staff Sergeant Wilkinson, son of Frederick Augustus and Marian Edith Wilkinson, was an Australian recruited into 13 Flight, D-Squadron, No 1 Wing, The Glider Pilot Regiment.

He took part in 'Operation Mallard', the main glider lift on the 6th June 1944, Normandy, to support the 6th Airborne Division. His take-off airfield was R.A.F. Keevil, flying a platoon of the 2nd Battalion The Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry to L.Z. 'W' supported by his second pilot, Sergeant. B. Dolling.

Deployed to Arnhem, he was on the 1st Lift, Sunday 17th September 1944. He flew to Landing Zone 'Z' from R.A.F. Keevil in a Horsa glider carrying support troops for the 1st Parachute Brigade. Along with the other pilots from D-Squadron he moved to the main 1st Airborne Divisional R.V. on the eastern side of the LZ near the mental asylum. His main task, along with the rest of D-Squadron, is likely to have been the defence of Divisional Headquarters. It is likely he remained with Divisional HQ until it finally ended up at the Hartenstein Hotel on the Tuesday 19th until the Monday 25th September, when he was killed.

He died of wounds on 25 September 1944 whilst sheltering in a slit trench close to the Hartenstein Hotel, Oosterbeek.

9952 Tadman Funeral Directors was originally conceived from the love of horses of the great-great-grandfather of one of the current directors of the company, Tim Tadman.
Thomas Tadman was a horse trader working from his home in Bale in Norfolk. He imported Friesian horses from Belgium, trained them to pull a glass hearse and then sold them to the Funeral Trade, mainly in the London Area. He, and his wife Dorcas, moved to Stepney, East London in 1849, and slowly built a thriving funeral business. After their deaths, their son Alfred William and his wife Annie continued to run the business successfully. He became a well known personality in the East End of London, not only as a Funeral Director, but also for his knowledge of Belgian Black Horses, which are the breed still used for the Horse Drawn Funerals.

9961 Terence Raymond Clancey spent the best part of his life in Wanganui, where his daughter, Gyda Toy, still lives.
He was born in London but came to New Zealand on the SS Ionic in 1909 at the age of 17, working his passage as a steward. He volunteered for active service when World War 1 broke out. Terence almost did not make it home; but for a miracle on the battlefield, he would have been buried with the dead at Gallipoli.
He joined the Territorials (11th Taranaki Rifles) while living in Raetihi with his brother George. When war broke out he volunteered for the army, starting duty on October 21. He became a sergeant in the Wellington Infantry Battalion and trained at Trentham Military Camp, embarking from Wellington on December 14 for Suez as part of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force. After further training in Egypt, the Australian and New Zealand troops joined the British attack at Helles on the Gallipoli Peninsula.
Wikipedia notes that the village of Krithia and neighbouring hill of Achi Baba had to be captured for the British to advance up the Gallipoli peninsular to the forts that controlled the Dardanelles straits. Only a small amount of ground was captured after two days of costly fighting.
General William Birdwood, commander of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, deemed Anzac Cove sufficiently secure to enable two brigades to be moved to Helles for the another assault on Krithia - the Australian 2nd Infantry Brigade and the New Zealand Infantry Brigade. Meanwhile the Turks had also been reinforcing their defences around Krithia.
British and Indian reinforcements also arrived and French troops were in place.
The commander at Helles, Major General Aylmer Hunter-Weston, was lacking in shells for his artillery and those he did have were shrapnel which was ineffective against entrenched positions. The navy was still hoarding shells for the anticipated assault on Constantinople.
While Helles is more forgiving than the terrain at Anzac Cove the battlefield still presented difficulties to the attacking force, including gullies, rivers and exposed ground. The plan was for a general advance on a broad front across the peninsular but in the end, after three days of fighting, the Allies abandoned the battle without completing even the first phase. The greatest advance achieved was a mere 600 yards (548m).
The British had no clear idea where the Turkish fortifications were so the preliminary bombardments before each advance were ineffectual. Hunter-Weston also insisted that attacks be made in broad daylight.
The Allied advance in thee second battle began later than scheduled, about 11am on May 6 and was swiftly halted by strong Turkish resistance. At no point were the Turkish defences reached. The attack was resumed on May 7 using the same plan and producing the same results.
On the morning of May 8 the 88th Brigade was relieved by the New Zealanders who made yet another attempt which failed with huge losses. The Wellington, Canterbury and Auckland Battalions gained another 400 yards (366m) through Fir Tree Wood to a place called the "Daisy Patch" before they became pinned down - and they still had no sight of the Turkish positions.
Despite their predicament, Hunter-Weston ordered the New Zealanders, including the Otago Battalion in reserve, to resume the attack at 5.30pm. Brigade commander Colonel Francis Johnston protested but Hunter-Weston insisted. However, General Sir Ian Hamilton, commander of the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force, who had landed at Helles to oversee the battle, ordered a general advance to be made at 5.30pm along the entire front with the aim of capturing Krithia and Achi Baba.
The Australian 2nd Infantry Brigade, under the command of Brigadier-General M'Cay, was given 25 minutes warning that it was about to join the attack. They managed to advance a further 500 yards (457m) , suffering 50 per cent casualties in the process.
The New Zealand Brigade made another attempt to cross the Daisy Patch and some troops managed to sight the Turkish trenches. About one-third of the Allied soldiers who fought in the battle became casualties. The poor planning extended to the poor medical provisions for the wounded. The few stretcher bearers available often had to carry their burdens all the way to the beach as there was no intermediate collecting station with wagon transport. The hospital ship arrangements were also inadequate so that once the wounded were taken off the beach they would have trouble finding a ship prepared to take them on board.
It was during the action at the Daisy Patch that Terence Clancey was wounded. He was shot in the neck and left for dead. The remaining New Zealanders were given the job to bury the dead but to remove their boots and uniforms first, because New Zealand uniforms were in bad condition and needed replacing. When Terence's boots were removed, his feet were found to be still warm. His boots were replaced and he was carried from the battlefield.
The Medical Report: "While advancing in the open to attack a Turkish position on May 8 at the Gallipoli Peninsular he got a gun-shot wound in the left side of the neck. The bullet entered through his left outer ear and emerged at the back of his neck. He was unconscious for five days and remembers nothing till May 13 when he was on the ship en route for Alexandra. He was in hospital at San Stefano and later 17th General Hospital and was sent to the base on June 29.
"Present condition: Patient shows small entrance scar in the pinna of left ear and a larger exit scar at the back of the neck. His head is held in a fixed condition, inclined to the left side and there is great pain on attempting to straighten it or rotate it. He has marked tenderness about the root of the cervical nerves on the left side and along the line of the occipital nerve.
Recommendation: Discharge as permanently unfit."
He was invalided to New Zealand on the SS Tahiti on August 7, 1915 and was sent to Rotorua Hospital.
On discharge from the army on March 31, 1916 Terence moved to Wanganui where he found employment with CF Millward & Co. He was put in charge of the shipping department, where he remained until the end of his life in 1952.
In 1917 he met Ethel Witney, born in Queensland, Australia, of New Zealand parents. They married in 1918.
Terence bought a house at 10 Koromiko Rd, in July 1920. This house was to become the family home where they raised six children. Terence died in 1952.
Gyda can distinctly remember the scar left by the bullet.

Ferdinand Beacroft
FB was a man who had a profound influence on my ownlife and development, which in the end bore some curious similarities to hisown early career, though our respective final destinations were to diverge intovery different ends; his business life being continuously in privateenterprise, while mine took a different path into 24 years work in the nationalised coal industry.
Born in 1890, he was brought up in what one woulddescribe as the "old dispensation" at Shipley - the Squirearchy,which ended in 1920 with the death of Mr A.E.M.Mundy, and which soonthereafter, in 1922, entered into a completely different world - a Shipley ofbustling private enterprise under the aegis of a limited company, ShipleyCollieries Ltd., which was incorporated in November 1922 and commenced tradingon December 22nd 1922.
His business life therefore spanned a period of about20 years in his "old dispensation", say 27 years under the newShipley regimes. while mine covered 25 years of the newer Shipley (192 -1947),followed by 24 years in the nationalised coal industry, there being thus anoverlap of  25 years spent by both of uswith Shipley Collieries Ltd.
I first met him in December 1922, when I entered theShipley Estate Office for a short period of 6 months or so as office boy toH.W.P.Moulton, the last Estate Agent, who was selling off the Estate propertiesfor Major Godfrey Miller Mundy.
I had heard a lot about FB before then from my father,who had known him from boyhood, and had always held him up to me as a shiningexample of what could be achieved by attention to duty and studying forqualification in some branch of work (in FB's case, accounting). My father'schief aim was to keep me away from a collier's job, he himself having sufferedbadly in 1920 from a severe accident at the coalface in Coppice pit.
The height of my father's ambition at that time was toget me into a job in the Shipley office organisation by whatever meanspossible; which aim he had succeeded through his connection with a friend ofhis in Marlpool named Boam, Moulton's father-in-law. My actual first meetingwith FB came a day or two after my first day in my employment as office boywhen, on entering the Estate Office after lunch, I was surprised to find a manalready there, standing comfortably with his back to the fireplace.
He asked me who I was; and I, of course, told him. Ihad never seen this man before, but I instantly divined that he was the man myfather had spoken so much about - "Ferdin" Beacroft. He asked me afew further questions which I do not now recall and then departed into theadjacent colliery offices, leaving me a somewhat puzzled boy, as may beimagined.
Myimpression of him at that moment was of a man slightly below average height,with a fresh complexion and slightly thinning brown hair. But the leadingfeature about him was his piercing dark eyes, which gave him an air of intensealertness, which I was often enough to observe in the years to come. Also,although at that moment, he had not yet acquired the official authority he wasshortly to assume, it was clear enough to me, boy though I was, that here was aman to hold a position of command and authority. I think these characteristicsmust have been marked in him even a boy, as I well remember my father tellingme of a sage remark made about him by my grandfather, who regularly observedthe boy making his way to work past the"Lane End" farmhouse. "One day", said my grandfather,"that boy will be the top man at Shipley"- a prophetic utterance indeed.
His first job with the colliery concern was as a boyat the Nutbrook weigh office. From there he was transferred to the GeneralOffice at the Field, as office boy. This would be in the time when C.S.Marshallwas the Commercial Manager and Alfred Smith the Cashier/Book-keeper of theconcern; and when the normal ladder of promotion was by way of dead men'sshoes. Somehow the spark of ambition must have arisen in the young Beacroft,who had no doubt observed the number of people above him on the ladder. How theidea came to him does not matter, but he grasped the fact that by studying fora professional qualification he would fit himself for a superior position. Inthose days the "Chartered Accountant" qualification was not open to ayoung man in his position, as it required articles[1];so he applied himself to one of the "outside" bodies that werespringing up to fill the gap in the field of qualification. It was, I think, the Central Associationof Accountants, and he set about passing their examinations through the mediumof a correspondence college, working in his spare time from home. He dulypassed the exams and could then produce a piece of paper in support of hisclaims had he required it. What he had done in fact was to mark himself out asthe one young man in the office hierarchy who had any real claim to fillinga superior position; and it was not long before he had a chance to exercise it,as Alfred Smith fell ill and FB was deputed to carry on the work of bookkeepingin his place. He took his chance with both hands and, applying all his nativeenergy to it, worked his way through all the problems of the job and came outon top. Many years later, in the only comment I ever heard him make on thisachievement, he mentioned that, on Alfred Smith's later return to work, theolder man had asked him only one question: how had FB got on with the Workman'sCoal Leading Account - which was rather a tricky assembly of miscellaneousitems arising from several sources, which then had to be carefully analysed andposted away to other appropriate accounts. It has to be appreciatedthat all this accounts work was in those days regarded as of highconfidentiality, not to say secrecy; but FB was able to say to Alfred that hehad mastered the problem. Alfred had nodded and never referred to the matteragain. The last bastion of his craft and prestige had been ferreted out andlaid open to other eyes.
But FB had now carved out for himself a definiteunassailable place within the office hierarchy, and when Alfred Smith died, thetwo former sides of his job were separated, FB taking over the accounts side,while the purely cashiers and day-to-day control of the office staff was taken over by H.J.Nunn,a capable enough man of the old order, but without FB's proven qualificationfor hat could now be seen as the job of an accountant with its own field ofresponsibility; a field in which FB's passion for order and accuracy could befully exercised. He detested sloppy work of any description. The arrangementworked and this was the situation when I joined the organisation in March 1922.
But FB's real chance did not yet come until theformation of the limited company in November 1922; and although I was not atthat moment a direct observer of events at the Field office (having just beentransferred to the Nutbrook weigh office) it does not take much imagination toreconstruct the events of 1922 onwards.
Put shortly, FB, with his thorough knowledge of theold dispensation, together with his readiness for the new, found favour with Clayton the Managing Director of thenew Company - and he was installed as the Company's Accountant - the comingman, while the older, senior members of the staff made their minds up as towhether they stayed with the bustling new management or retired or left.A.T.Annibal [?] the then Commercial Manager, who had taken over fromC.S.Marshall, soon retired, but most of the office staff "stayed put"and things moved on largely a before, with FB now in position as a seniorofficial. Clayton brought in a new Sales Manager named L.S.J.Thomson, who wassupported by FB and did not stay long; and so FB became Commercial Manager,responsible for both Accounts and Sales, in unquestioned command of all theoffice staff.
It would be in 1923 when H.J.Nunn, the cashier, leftthe company, having bought the business of a Loughborough coal merchant,H.J.Loader. By then, I had been transferred from The Nutbrook weigh office tothe Field general office as office boy to Mr H.E.A.Henderson. I well rememberbeing deputed to carry Nunn's leaving present, a chair over to his house, themiddle one in the terrace, in which we ourselves went to live many years later,in 1941.
All was not to be plain sailing, however, in the earlyyears of the new company - the twenties - and FB felt the full weight of hisresponsibilities. He was furnished with a new assistant, an accountant/cashiernamed J.E.Baker, a Yorkshireman, who fitted in very well, thus enabling FB toconcentrate on the selling side, which he enjoyed most and began to develop.Clayton, for his part, was forcing forward the substantial capital expenditureprogramme, including the new sinking to the Kilburn seam at Coppice No 3 pit.The difficulties and problems of this period, including the great Miners'Strike of 1926 and the company's cash difficulties, which later bore hard on FBand Baker, are described in some detail in the main 1922-1954 narrative andneed not be repeated here. Suffice it to say that the Kilburn coal was reachedin late 1928 and the company entered the thirties on a brighter upward note.
In 1933 the Shipley Group acquired the business andassets of the Manvers Colliery Company, our Ilkeston neighbours, who had runinto financial difficulties. The whole transaction was handled smoothly; nostaff difficulties arose, and as the Manvers and Lodge Collieries were workingin the same seams as Shipley, no sales difficulties were encountered, save inthe disposal of the mountain of stock that the Manvers people had accumulated,which was accomplished over a reasonable period of time.
A much bigger problem arose in our entanglement withthe affairs of the Mitchell Main Colliery Company of Wombwell in Yorkshire,which again is discussed fully in the main narrative. As time went on, FB'sresponsibilities and interest in that company's affairs perforce grew greater.First, Robert Clayton died in 1941; then R.G.Eaton, FB's fellow director andlong term associate in the working of Shipley and Ilkeston Collieries died in1942 and FB assumed the sole Managing Directorship of all three companies,involving the great weight of the legacy of misjudgment and mismanagement atMitchell Main, which had followed from the Shipley Board's considerableinvestment in and support of Mitchells, into which they had been led by RobertClayton's own personal connection with the place. I know that FB had at onestage feared that the continual drain of financial losses at Mitchells mightbring Shipley to its knees. But he ploughed on resolutely throughout the waryears, until the Election of 1945 brought an entirely new factor into the wholemining industry - the nationalisation of the mines.
This was indeed an unwelcome development for themineowners; but all they could do was to cooperate with the Government, whichwas intent upon change, so as to minimise damage to their own interests, to themines, and the whole industry in the welter of legislation that was to arise
As to the Shipley Board, the Chairman, Sir John Fryand Major Mundy appeared to accept the situation without pleasure, but withequanimity; but both Guinness and Hans Hamilton were bitterly resentful andopposed to the nationalisation and could hardly believe that it was reallygoing to happen. It took all of FB's tact and knowledge to get them to realisethe inevitable: they kept on bringing forward impracticable - indeed ridiculous- notions into Board discussions on the subject.
Anxieties then arose as to what was going to happen tothe directors generally and senior members of the staffs of the collieries. TheNCB commenced various series of meetings and interviews with senior people toseek out and appoint such as were willing and available to take up the keypositions in the new organisation they had sketched out for the control of thenationalised industry. FB was seen several times by the Chairman of the NCB,Lord Hyndley and various other Board members for positions on one or otherDivisional Board either as Sales Director or Deputy Chairman. I was seen by LionelLowe, the Board Finance member.
Eventually, Westwood and I were appointed as seniorofficials of No 5 Area in the East Midlands Division; but in the end, FBdecided to stay with the Shipley Board in order to see them through thevaluation process, which in fact took up several years. He chose wisely. Inever thought he would have been happy in the circumscribed and rigid patternof the nationalised framework, having lived for so many years with the freedomof action he had enjoyed under private enterprise.
Westwood and I, being younger, fitted into the newpattern easily, and both of us gained in authority and responsibility in thejobs to which we were appointed, he as the Area General Manager and I as AreaChief Accountant and we were both able to do good work there. He died suddenlyand most unexpectedly in 1951.
But it is time that I drew together somecharacteristics of FB - in every way the best man I ever worked for or with.There seemed to be some natural unspoken bond between us, which of course foundgreater expression and trust as the years went by, from my boyhood days until Igained positions of seniority under both him and later with the NCB, when I couldspeak more freely and at greater ease with him.
Hewas a man of the greatest integrity and, within his own field, at every stagehe radiated complete authority and one always felt safe with him. When he gavean instruction, one's only thought was to go out and do the job withoutquestion. His quickness of apprehension was remarkable, whatever the problemsput before him - before one was half way through explaining the problem hewould furnish the answer - invariably correct and practical. in the later yearswhen I was able to speak more freely with him, i once had the temerity to sayto him that, in that respect, he had been less than beneficial to me. He wasastounded, and required to know what I meant. I said "well, your grasp ofa question has been so quick that I was never able to learn and practise theart of deploying a logical argument through fro1me beginning to the end - ineffect, fully to make out a case; your answer always came out before I had gothalf way through the question". He was doubly astonished and we had a goodlaugh about it.
But it is of course a fact that between wellacquainted associates there grows to be an economy of words, since every oneknows exactly what the other's every word means in any give situation; and akind of staccato style develops, which a third party can find difficulty infollowing.
There was also one occasion between us such that, whenit was over, I found it endlessly amusing. It arose out of his regular walksaround the estate and colliery roads in which he took an endless delight as anold Shipley man. On a Monday morning one always had to be prepared to receivesome question about something he had observed over the weekend; I used to feela bit sorry for Stanley Hill, who finally after Wheldon's death graduated tothe task of keeping the estate looking respectable. Stanley would be faced onMondays with some query or assertion that this or that fence obviously neededattention or some other thing was suffering neglect.
For my part the questions used mainly to concern whycertain wagons were in certain untoward places. William Cutts also came underenquiry in matters of surface management at the pits - FB could not standuntidiness or slipshod work anywhere.
My problem arose while I was still quite a youngfellow, when one Monday morning I received a phone call from FB asking thedirect question (he always came straight to the point) "why a certaingroup of wagons were not at the point they should be at the washery awaitingloading?" I instantly perceived that I was on the horns of a dilemma: if Isaid this, I should catch it for some clear mistake; while if I said that, Iwas caught out on some other point, and there were only the two answersavailable. So I stood silent at my end of the phone, totally unable to make upmy mind which thing to say. After what seemed to be an interminable time, Iheard his voice say, somewhat sarcastically, "echo answers!" But Istill stood wordless, absolutely petrified by uncertainty. Then, after another interminableperiod of silence, I had the most peculiar feeling that the blood was risingfrom the nape of my neck up to the crown of my head; and when it reached thecrown, I suddenly had a feeling of intense relief and thought: "to hellwith him, I'm not going to speak, whatever"; and then I heard hisvoice again saying, "Well, John, you've beaten me" and then the soundof his receiver being put down. An oddity of this story lay in the fact that atno time thereafter did either of us ever refer to this incident and that over aperiod of nearly 20 years (until nationalisation) I always regarded the wholeincident as some kind of psychological freak; laughable enough later, butreplete with intensity at the time it occurred..
This, however, was a peculiarity of our relationship -a great respect on my part for his personal qualities, which never ceased oreven faltered throughout his life; and on his part, a kind of regard forwhatever I had that appealed to him. I remember being surprised one time at hisconfidence in what he thought was my ability as he thought to"bottom" a problem. But it was merely a difference of approach; hehad, as I have said, this uncanny ability to cut straight and quickly to thenub and kernel of a question. My approach was the opposite: I always had toexamine the frame in which the picture was set and only then to get to thecentre by a sort of gradual encroachment inwards. I could never be happy byjust diving in towards the target.
Heappreciated a new idea when he thought it good and sound, as witness his readyacceptance of Trevor Jones' suggestion that we should mechanise our office workto a sensible degree, which we did, and successfully with common-sense and thenecessary preparation work which is so essential.
There is an old saying that "the shortest way isthe best way" and I have often reflected that the best appreciation of FBthat I ever heard was one made by Ernest Wheldon, our Chief Surveyor for manyyears at Shipley, whom I heard say "He is very keen, but very fair".A short but accurate verdict. In my experience he was always fair, knowing fullwell that arrangements that are merely dictatorial or one-sidedly authoritativewill sooner or later come to grief He seemed always to visualise what anintelligent third party would say and not drive a matter too far merely toachieve a victory. Curiously, I never heard him in action as chairman of ameeting, but have no doubt that this inherent feeling for fairness would havestood him in good stead in that matter also, although I have heard lesser menmake good chairmen.
I would not have classed him as an original thinker.He was not an "ideas" man, who had a dozen ideas a week, only one ofwhich was of the slightest use. In every way he was a "middle of theroad" man, who preferred the tried and practical way of approach, althoughin some relatively minor matters he could spring a surprise by choosing, say,an unexpected route to a given destination when travelling by car.
I myself have a favourite classification of businessmeninto (1) organisation builders; (2) organisation runners; and (3) organisationwreckers. In (1) I would place firmly Joseph Latham (later Sir Joseph) one timeDeputy Chairman of the NCB, who built up the Board's well founded FinanceDepartment; FB 1 would have placed in class (2) as a man who could take over anexisting organisation and run it successfully, adapting it only at need to meetchanged circumstances; and in (3) I would have placed Ronald Parker. These lastare the men who cannot or will not use the existing or laid down channels ofcommunication, preferring to work through preferences of a personal nature, sothat if one such doesn't like or cannot get on with, say, a departmentalmanager one uses his assistant or some other favourite; so that before long thedepartment becomes bemused, not knowing who is to do what, and only functionsthrough personal instructions from the wrecker, who himself has not got eitherthe guts or power to sack or transfer the accredited manager who is not up tothe job. Another instance of this wrecking tendency (with which I becamepersonally acquainted) was the case of a chairman, who, through sheerselfishness and vanity would have repeated financial exercises carried out onslightly different bases until a result emerged that satisfied his personalvanity or whim, so supporting his idea that he was right and everyone else waswrong (including his superiors) o the given point at issue. There are, ofcourse, variants o the general theme, such as poor choosy of the man for thejob; or those who fail to see that if a given job requires a man who can jump 3feet it is useless to choose two men each of whom can only jump 2 feet. Thelist is endless.
When, in the course of time, I became an NCB man,either at Eastwood or in Scotland, and FB went to live in the South of England,we could meet less frequently. But it was always a delight to see him again onsome occasion when we both had some business meeting in London and would thenrepair to Bentleys (then still a family place) and have a dinner together,usually consisting of a plate of smoked salmon and some Blue Stilton,accompanied by a Hock or Moselle.
Itwas always like a breath of fresh air to hear a voice of independentcommon-sense on matters of current affairs or on men of our commonacquaintance. One realised how regimented one was becoming or had become. Hehimself had been recommended by W.R.T.Whatmore, a senior partner in Peats, torepresent the interests of an American investor in the then electronics firm ofPlessey and had acquired a fair knowledge of their senior staff people - andindeed due to his complete independence and transparent trustworthiness, a kindof father-confessor to some of them in workaday difficulties they encountered.
Before the Shipley Group's valuation work had beencompleted, he and Mrs Beacroft went first to live at a cottage on their sonBob's farm near Heathfield in Sussex; then to Ardingly, also in Sussex; then Ithink to Goring-on-Thames; then, I think, Mrs Beacroft died on a visit toanother farm of Bob's at Mapledurham, near the Thames. Then he had a spell athis daughter's house and finally ended his days in a residential home, still inthe South.
Suchwas Ferdinand Beacroft, the best mentor and truest friend I ever had.

9987 The evidence from genealogical records available on the Internet (e..g. the Ennever family tree) suggests that Apperly practised as a dental surgeon. There is also a brief mention of a H. C. Apperly as a dental surgeon at Great Ormond Street Hospital in a resumé of a 2010 conference presentation by Stanley Gelbier (PDF). The final paper appears to have been published in Dental History as "Great Ormond Street Hospital, its dental surgeons (1856-1946) and the Cartwright family" (PubMed entry), but I haven't been able to track that down as yet.
The Ennever family tree cited above states that Herbert Claude Apperly was born in Hampstead in 1894, the son of Herbert Apperly (also a Dental Surgeon) and Florence (Edmunds); then married to Kathleen Jean Forbes Morris on the 8 April 1926.
Interestingly, the National Portrait Gallery catalogue lists two portraits of "Herbert Apperly (died 1932)," there described as consulting dental surgeon to Elizabeth Garnett Anderson Hospital. This (I think) would have been H. C. Apperly's father.
