PLA: a car thief or a motorcycle thief?

I can't recall whether or not this has been discussed before on the board, so apologies in advance if it has.

Hawser has Alphon convicted in 1953 for pinching a motor cycle, Woffinden a car. Given...

Did Justice pay Alphon £25,000?

Neil Clark, in a Nov 5, 2002 article in The Spectator that aimed to debunk the work of the A6 Committee, wrote: "In the end, it cost Justice £25,000 to wring a ‘confession’ out of Alphon in 1967."...

Doesn't the following settle once and for all that the man asking about Tarlton Road could only have called into the shop on the Monday, when numerous witnesses placed Hanratty in London?

Cheers Graham. Seems odd that Sherrard would go through that rigmarole with the judge and Swanwick to ask Valerie about a somebody she'd not heard of. Then again, it's a case full of oddities.

You couldn't point me to an obit, per chance?

That's a hell of a price for the Hawser Report. Wonder who's buying it?

Woffinden and Hawser

Hawser's report really had Woffinden chewing the carpet didn't it.

Commenting on the death of James Hanratty, Sr, he went so far as to aver that it was in part "the perfidy of the wretched Hawser"...
