No-one's ever chased the wrong Monty Druitt, have they, genealogically speaking, I mean? I quite miss the old arguments about Monty!

Not that I know of, but it took so long to find him who knows? So I tossed him into the mix.

Agreed there isn't much talk about him lately, which I've never understood, would love to know what Mac's Private Information was though.

Lord knows no one has every chased the wrong Mary Kelly. At least we can feel good about that.

Yours truly,

If you can't trust a book titled 'Jack the Ripper: A Love Story', then what can you trust?

Yours truly,

I've just finished reading Tom's book "The Bank Holiday Murders".

An excellent book. Strong, research-based, introduced a number of new ideas.

It brings a fresh perspective. Some of the other Ripper books start to merge into one as they discuss the same evidence and issues. This one introduces some new ideas which I found interesting.

A real insight for me was the new evidence on Tabard's murder that showed it had more similarities to other Ripper murders. Also interesting to read that Pearl Poll's statements about seeing Tabram with soldiers may have been a lie. I had previously dismissed Tabram as a victim but this brings new thinking.

Also interesting to read how the bayonet wounds could have been from a stick knife, as used by a gentleman.

Would be good to discuss these new insights on the Tabram thread

All the best

Craig

Hi Craig, thank you for the kind words. For the record, not only gentlemen carried sword sticks at the time. They were rather common. I was surprised by that too but researched newspapers and other sources at the time. We can't be certain by any means, but I think a sword stick is the most likely explanation for the heart wound to Tabram and also the blood between the legs. If her killer was the Ripper, the pen knife and swordstick were afterwards abandoned for better weaponry.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Definitely not just "gentlemen". Since Tom mentioned it in his book I've came across a few sword stick incidents with native East Enders. This one happened at a familiar place.
