At the time we are talking about, the Estate Duty threshold was 3,000 and for a deceased leaving a widow and children the statutory legacy for the widow was 5,000.

So in both Gregsten and France's cases their respective widows would have been entitled to the whole of the estate, with Gregsten's estate with a potential liability to Estate Duty.

Even if Estate Duty had been paid it was only 1% for the first band of 3-4,000.

Previously I suggested that the 3,269 might be explained by Gregsten’s mother having put her house in his name to avoid Estate Duty, but it seems hardly worth doing that to avoid 32! Perhaps she had other assets.

Anyway the Land Registry entry for 19 Wentworth Avenue will show who had title at that time.

Default 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 that Alphon being able to drive a car would bolster Woffinden's thesis, and keeping in mind his record for being free-and-easy with the facts, I'm inclined to believe Hawser. Anyone know for sure?
