No zeppelins in Hoddesdon

Hertfordshire Mercury, 25th September 1915


At Cheshunt Petty Sessions on Wednesday, John Walker (35), of no fixed abode, was summoned for driving a horse and cart without a light at Hoddesdon on September 10.  The defendant pleaded guilty, and the case was proved by P.c. Freeman.  When the witness drew then defendant’s attention to the fact that he had no light, he said: ‘I should think you have enough to do looking after Zeppelins and bombs.’  (Laughter).  The Clerk: ‘But they don’t have them in Hoddesdon, do they?’  (Laughter).  The witness: ‘No.’  Previous convictions were proved and the defendant was fined £1 1s. or 13 days.
