Blackpool telephone conversation with Acott.

During one of his telephone conversations with Acott from Blackpool, Hanratty asked (not verbatim) 'What size was the gun'. What a strange question if he'd committed the crime. It makes no sense,...

Thank you for the correction, Derrick.
Do you happen to know if any were found on the steering wheel, or for that matter where any of the fingerprints were found in the MM?

Hi, and thanks for your reply.
I wonder whether he was known as 'Snowy' to his brother, but JH knew him by another name?
It also doesn't state when the encounter took place.

The car could not have been cleaned as you say, or all other forensics would have been lost or destroyed.
If one was so minded then an inference could be drawn from the evidence that remained.

Alternatively I have a pic on my laptop if someone can tell me how to upload it.

Nick,

in the context of the hanky it doesn't really matter - unless you think that he lied about it being his.

A lot of posters ask why Peter Alphon was always let off lightly by the police.

But didn't Mick Hanratty say that France told him not to worry, as his brother had nothing to do with it?
