    I know why they were there, it's not a pretty tale. Do you want me to post the newspaper report, or do you want to get in touch via a conversation and I'll send you a transcript of the newsparer report?

    I see Alma was also in there at the time.

    Ann - have you got the 1908 report as well as that of 1911?
