This case was tried at the Central Criminal Court on November 20 before Judge Atherley-Jones. The defendant was charged with unlawfully attempting to forge a copy of the London Gazette. He had served as a lieutenant during the war, and on leaving the Army went to Cambridge University. He was convicted of theft in 1922. And he appears to have conceived the idea, partly in connection with this conviction, of forging a copy of an official publication, in order to bestow upon himself titles and awards of which he was not possessed, It was suggested that his object was to deceive his father and mother as to his military position.
