how did Piggot first come to police attention?
He was raving in a pub in Gravesend and the landlady sent for a bobby

He was under police supervision in the infirmary during the Double Event.

OK thanks so much

I'm pretty sure he was described as having red hair-the man seen in Fiddymonts pub, not sure about Piggot.

because Fiddymont man has been floated as being blotchy(carroty) before

Hello, Deb,

That is an interesting comment, and on second glance at the sketch in your post, I agree that it could be a scar. The beard seems very pointed, but the artist isn't too talented. Maybe he wanted to convey the "foreign" aspect of the subject.
