Apr-14-14  Captain Hindsight: The people don't understand Reid
He seems like a whole different breed
He's hopelessly dense
And not making sense
We're not even sure he can read

  MissScarlett: Leeds Mercury, July 11th 1936, p.3:


Harrogate Man Sentenced; Another Acquitted.

The fraudulent conversion of the proceeds of the sale of a number of antiques, the property of Mrs. G. M. Barrand, Clifton Lodge, Clifton Villas, Bradford, was alleged at Leeds Assizes yesterday against former partners in a firm of auctioneers and estate agents, Gerald Mutrie Reid (30), Dragon Parade, Harrogate, and Harold Windsor (26), Highthorne Street, Harrogate.

Mr. A. P. Peaker, prosecuting, alleged that the two men obtained the antiques, which were valued at £25, from Mrs. Barrand for sale on a commission basis, and that they had not handed over the proceeds, despite several efforts by Mr. and Mrs. Barrand to obtain them.

Reid, in the witness-box, said that he had sold the goods and had made an offer of payment. It had always been his and Windsor's intention to pay Mrs. Barrand in full.

Windsor said only some of the articles had been sold when he left Reid on the understanding that his partner would liquidate any debts.

Windsor was found not guilty and discharged. Reid was sentenced to four months in the second division.>

Reid's age is out by a decade but it's clearly our boy.

Mar-24-22  areknames: What does second division mean here, is it like a suspended sentence? Did Reid actually spend time in the clinker?

  MissScarlett: See:

English prisons are now split into categories ( but there's no longer any specific provision 'for the separation of prisoners of previously good character from those of depraved or criminal habits.'
