I Wounded Soldier's Escapade1


I Wounded Soldier's Escapade A SHOCKING RECOxiD." A wounded soldier now at home, was charged at the Police Court on Thursday with committing wilful damage to a mirror at the Station Hotel, of the value of £ S. Defendant pleaded guilty, and Mary Richards, barmaid, said the defendant entered the Station Hotel at 8.50 p.m. the previous night and asked for a drink, whi i i she declined to supply him as she thought he had had enough. He then threatened to smash the bar door after which he followed her into the smoke room, where lie smashed the mirror. j P.C. J. Lloyd Thomas said he "Saw de- I dendant in Water street at 10.30 p.m., and when charged with the offence, de- fendant said "I am guilty." Defendant who expressed regret, said he had been in hospital for seven months. "I lost-my right arm at Ypres and also the sight of one of my eyes. I've been on the brink of death, and a little drink upsets me." Inspector Morgan reported 15 previous coimctioas, including one for wounding. The Clerk: That is one side of the story, and defendant has given the other. The Presiding Magistrate: It is a shocking record. The Clerk: But you have heard what the defendant has done for the country since then. The Presiding Magistrate: No, I have not. The Clork then explained what the de- fendant had suffered through the war. The Presiding Magistrate: Still that is no reason why he should go and get drunk. After retiring to consider their decision the Bench said it was a sad case, but they had to take into Account what the defendant had done for the country. On defendant promising to sign the pledge he was bound over for 12 months in a sum of £ 5 to he of good behaviour.
