Chichester: Murders and Misdemeanours13th February
In the Harrison Room
A number of notorious crimes have beset the Chichester area. Ranging from a murderous drunken assault on a soldier recruited into the Army of George III to the discovery of an unknown and decapitated body in the waters of Chichester Harbour in the 1950’s.
In tonight’s talk, local historian Philip Macdougall will provide a fascinating survey of early policing methods together with the laxity, inefficiency and crude blundering with which it was often accompanied.
