On This Day 1916: AWOL soldier “kicked up rough”.

Military absentee – at the Police Court, William Wynyard was charged with being absent without leave (AWOL) from the 10th Battalion Royal Sussex Regiment at Shoreham Camp. P.C. Monk explained he had met the defendant at Horsham on the previous evening. When the soldier was asked for his pass he “kicked up rough” and refused to give any account of himself. The defendant admitted to the offence, and was remanded to await a military escort.
