Ledsham, Lewis Victor Ellson was charged with deserting the Lancashire Regiment, and was remanded to await an escort.—Ellson, it may be remembered, was apprehended by P.S. Taylor in Whitchurh on May 4th.

On the after- noon of that day P.C. Andrews had been taking a prisoner from Whitchurch to Shrewsbury, and having completed his business went into a public-house, where he saw Ellson. He at once took him into custody, and they reached Whit- church at 6-20. Ellson is a native of Northwich. He had procured a licence for his marriage with a widow, and but for the intervention of the polica the marriage would have taken place before this.
