    Yeah, we know. As has been declared over and over again. Maybe, don't start another Lechmere thread?

      I suppose one of the gang could peddle stopwatches and maps from a stand in Frank Dobson Square as a lucrative side hustle....

      I don't know how Ed does it, but I was surprised to see that if one punches "Doveton Street" into Google Maps there's an icon showing the former home of one Charles Allen Lechmere.

      What the actual flip.

      I suppose the hapless carman will have his own blue plaque someday!

      Hi RJ,

      That reminds me of the geneological website, wikitree. On the pages of historically important people, there is a small rectangle that says "____ is a notable". According to Lechmere's wikitree page, he's a notable.

        What you talking about Willis? (This is a Lechmere thread..)

            Technically it is also a noun, but if they are using it as such, and haven't simply misplaced the rather important word "suspect" or something similar... well, to paraphrase Inigo Montoya, "That word they are using... I do not think it means what they think it means..."

              Ha ha! You bet I did, Herlock. I got out of that place, nicknamed Colditz, after a year of hell.

              My job was to dictate responses to customer queries, which would go to the typing pool and be checked - and often 'corrected' - by a supervisor who had terrible grammar, spelling and punctuation skills, so my letter would end up a mess. Hell on earth.

              Love,

              Caz

                I won’t bore you to death with the full story Caz but I think I could tell you a tale about British Gas that took incompetence and ineptitude to previously unscaled peaks. It was to do with electricity vouchers awarded to my mum to help with fuel costs. They kept sending them in my Dad’s name and as he’d died 4 years previously she was unable to redeem them. It went on for 8 months with them sending her voucher after voucher in my Dad’s name and me making 16 phone calls in total. As you would no doubt assume, I was a model of patience and diplomacy. When it was finally sorted they again apologised profusely and sent her a compensatory cheque for 80….in my Dad’s name!!!
                Regards

                  Don't want to derail this thread, but since this happened yesterday... my good Lady's phone performed some form of seppuku, and she got on the laptop and ordered an emergency replacement. No human interaction was possible because... she didn't have a phone so had to contend with the "Interactive Chat Assistant"
                  When everything was sorted and the phone was ordered the ICA aoounced that she would need a specially generated personal code to give to the delivery agent when they brought the phone, "The Code has been sent as a text message to your phone."

                  Now my phone has a new OS and all the naughty words I had told the Spell Checker to ignore and let me use have been reset... as the result of emergency transplant surgery in order for her to get one bloody text message.

                    They're using it as a noun. I've spent quite a bit of time on that site, and usually they call someone a "notable" if they have at least some historical importance, such as a governor of a state, or a major musical artist, or a Hall of Fame athlete. Calling Lechmere a "notable" is the oddest use of that label that I've ever seen on that site.

                      I know it is. I was wondering what your preoccupation was with Lechmere.

                        I explained this in a thread where I'd been away from the forums for a long time due to X, Y and Z but on my return the largest number of posts appear to be about Lechmere so I thought I'd start there. Obviously I'm still rather stuck there due to the volume of posts and I'm rather curious that such a huge 'industry' has been made out of a man that basically found a body on his way to work. It's rather intriguing to say the least. The more I read and understand the more I'm shocked that folk still peddle this bloke as a serious candidate with such vigour and after so many years when basically there is nothing on him. All the reasons for him being Jack have been debunked numerous times.

                          There were no lights shining on Bath St. near Foster. That is just something Christer made up. When challenged about it he became very vague and referenced the fact there were lights at the front of the Brewery facing Whitechapel Road.

                          Just another of the Lechmere myths, I'm afraid.
                          Ed Stow made it up too Dusty?

                          He's very careful and there were the two correspondents (I can dig them up) who stationed themselves on Buck's row, soon after the murder, between 11 pm and 5? am, and they wrote about the strong light coming from the Albion brewery.

                          They didn't speak about the north wall, but its not a stretch to suppose they had them there.

                            I also wonder if Lechmere's estimate of 30 or 40 yards is accurate, partly, as you propose, because it would have been difficult to make an accurate estimate under the conditions and partly because I wonder if he would have been able to distinguish Paul's dark figure from the gloom immediately after turning towards the sound of the footsteps he heard.

                            All the best,
                            Frank
                            Hi Frank,

                            You should wonder about that.

                            However, his estimate was not made by a glance; it was made over the course of time first seeing him and then waiting for him to arrive.
                            Did he begin the estimate when he first barely saw him, or when he saw the full figure .... I'd opt for the former.

                            His night vision should have been somewhat better than Paul's.
                            Here is the sequence of activations of the human eye acclimatizing to darkness.
                            • 5–7 minutes: Cone cells reach maximum sensitivity
                            • 10 minutes: Rod cells start to catch up and take over
                            • 20 minutes: Rods are doing their best and you can see as well as possible in the dark
                            • 30–45 minutes or more: Rods reach 80% dark adaptation

                              This isn't a desperate post honest.
