To me (and it may be just me) that doesn't make sense.
I totally agree, and why was he at Colney Hatch? Because of mental health issues. That being said, would the authorities there let him out into police custody knowing his mental state,I doubt this very much.

I agree. While I think the ID definitely took place I too find it hard to believe it would be so far away.

So what else would make Swanson think seaside home if it wasn't the seaside home? Is there anything in the name or other aspect of a police affiliated building closer to London that would make someone confuse it with the seaside home?

There is Stewart Evans's suggestion of an ID at the Sailors' Home in Wells St.

I don't have my books to hand, but wasn't it in "Scotland Yard Investigates"?

Hello Colin,

Whilst I admire the effort you have put into this idea, it is worth remembering that at this time there were dozens of 'Seaside Homes' all over the south coast.

The original suggestion of the Police Seaside Home at Hove came, I believe, from Donald Rumbelow. Please excuse my memory if faulty.
I do not believe he was aware of the myriad of possible places said 'Seaside Home' could have been at the time of his suggestion.

So.again..with great respect..if the 'Seaside Home" comment is to be believed in itself as true.. there are far many greater possibilities than a police orphanage.
(I used to live relatively near to the above)


Regards


Phil
