Birch for Ruffian.

Press cutting

"There is too much maudlin sentimentality lavished on young ruffians like you," said the Recorder, Sir Ernest Wild, K.C., at the Old Bailey yesterday, when John Bussey, aged 21, a shop assistant, and Frederick James Braithwaite, 19, a labourer, pleaded guilty to robbing a messenger boy.

Bussey, who had previously been sent to Borstal, was sentenced to nine months' imprisonment and 15 strokes of the birch, and Braithwaite, who was given a good character, was ordered to be kept in custody till the January Sessions.
