I'm curious about a reference in a recent post of yours. You mention "a lovely photograph of a mouchard" in a book dealing with the secret police. As a rule, the French word "mouchard"...

Hi Phil,

I'm afraid Abberline's grave is in Bournemouth while Druitt's is in Winbourne. Not the same place, is it?

Hello Observer,
