Wilful damage to railway property

Hertfordshire Mercury, 2nd June 1906

Transcript

At Bishop’s Stortford Petty Sessions on Thursday, Fredrick Lilley and Thomas Brett, lads, were charged with committing wilful damage to a tarpaulin, the property of the Great Eastern Railway Company, and doing damage to the value of 10s. The defendants admitted cutting the sheet to get some corn, but the company did not charge them with theft. The Bench adjourned the case for a fortnight so that their fathers might chastise them to the satisfaction of Supt Martin.
