Helping friends cost him £12 10s
Thursday 1st February 1945
William Royle of Compley Ave, Poulton was summoned for the improper use of petrol and the use of trade plates for an unauthorised purpose.
He pleaded guilty and was fined £12, 10s for giving some friends a lift home in his employer’s car after they couldn’t get a taxi home.
I wonder if his friends were good enough to pay his fine?
Somehow I doubt it.
