World War I daily bulletin from the Horsham district

An amusing report from the County Times of 1914.

“A prisoner with a guilty conscience, who had absconded from Chichester, happened to see the police superintendent of his district in Horsham, and concluding that he must have come after him, promptly went into the police station and gave himself up.

“As a matter of fact the superintendent did not know he was in town.”
