Today in the Pace case: 1 June

Friday, 1 June 1928: The Dean Forest Guardian reports that A. A. Purcell, Member of Parliament for the Forest of Dean, has started a legal defence fund to enable adequate representation of his impoverished constituent at her upcoming trial for murder.

‘The plight of Mrs. Pace and her children', Purcell is reported as saying, 'had moved him very deeply’

  1. Morning John,

    I am loosely doing research on FLorence Earengey for the Cheltenham Local History Soceity's biennieal history day whch this year is on "Women of Cheltenham". I have recently had a book published "Cheltenham in the Great War" and came across Florence and her husband William. She was a Captain in the Women's Volunteer Reserve during the war. They moved from Cheltenham in 1919 for William to pursue his career as a barrister. He became a judge eventually. Do you have any information on Florence that I may use please? I can be contacted on neela.mann@live.co.uk
    Many thanks
