Now only £12 in the sale: Women and the Gallows 1797-1837 – Unfortunate Wretches by Naomi Clifford.

131 women were hanged in England and Wales between 1797 and 1837, executed for crimes including murder, baby-killing, theft, arson, sheep-stealing and passing forged bank notes. Most of them were extremely poor and living in desperate situations. Some were mentally ill. A few were innocent. And almost all are now forgotten, their voices unheard for generations.

Mary Morgan – a teenager hanged as an example to others.

Eliza Fenning – accused of adding arsenic to the dumplings.

Mary Bateman – a ‘witch’ who duped her neighbours out of their savings.

Harriet Skelton – hanged for passing counterfeit pound notes in spite of efforts by Elizabeth Fry and the Duke of Gloucester to save her.

Naomi Clifford has unearthed the events that brought these ‘unfortunates’ to the gallows and has used contemporary newspaper accounts and documents to tell their stories.

The King’s Men – The Sandringham Company and Norfolk Regiment Territorial Battalions, 1914-1918 – Regimental History by Neil R Storey.

The 4th and 5th Battalions, The Norfolk Regiment were formed as battalions of the new Territorial Force in 1908 and were deployed with 54th (East Anglian) Division to Gallipoli in 1915. Most significantly the 1/5th Battalion was unique in that it contained The Sandringham Company, the only unit to be raised entirely from a Royal Estate.

Tragically the 5th Battalion was decimated during an attack on 12 August 1915 and a myth arose that the Sandringham Company, along with King George V’s Agent Captain Frank Beck, disappeared without a trace, presumed to have been overwhelmed by their Turkish adversaries.

The Battalion was rebuilt and saw out the ill-fated Gallipoli Campaign being evacuated to Egypt in December 1915. Thereafter the 1/4th and 1/5th Norfolk Territorial Battalions served with distinction in Palestine as part of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force.

Neil R. Storey has compiled a fascinating history of these battalions’ distinguished service using contemporary records and personal accounts illustrated with a splendid selection of photographs. The result is a fitting tribute to the memory of these brave soldiers.
