Two members of a Canadian Battalion stationed at Shoreham Camp appeared in court ‘before the bench’ charged with being absent without leave.
Constable Holden and Special Constable Bridgewater gave evidence that Private Murdoch McClosky and Corporal Roy Hovey were found accosting girls in Rowlands Road. Neither soldier had a pass to allow them out of Camp into Worthing and were detained in custody.
