Two Amusing Incidents
Golden Jubilee Reminiscences by Frank Ellison
One was in connection with the temporary hut which had been erected for use as a branch at either Pheasey or Kingstanding. The branch was broken into, but nothing taken. Some boys volunteered information to the police and they were duly taken to the police station and regaled with tea and buns. It afterwards turned out that they were the culprits.
The other incident is against myself. On the opening of the new premises at Broad Street by the Duke of Kent, I duly arrived in a taxi with others, and got out of the car, when a bottle of whisky which I had in my pocket fell out and broke, much to the amusement of the Duke who was standing at the main entrance to receive us.
