The prosecutor said that at a quarter to 12 on the 6th inst., the prisoner came to his shop and was measured for a suit of clothes. He stated that he was going to Glasgow to get married, and also said that he was going to be paid off from the steamer Brighton on the following morning. Before leaving the shop he obtained a loan of 10s, promising to call next day to have the coat and waistcoat tried on and to repay the loan. On Monday morning , the 9th inst., witness made inquiries at the shipping office regarding the steamer Brighton and found that it had been paid off on the 31st ult. In answer to the magistrates witness said that he had known the prisoner since last summer, having met him on the Midnight Sun, with which vessel he had some business dealings. Supt. Robt. Walton of the Board of Trade, stated that the Brighton was paid off on the 31st ult. and that the prisoner then received all the money that was due to him. Detective Sergt. Scougal said he arrested the prisoner on a warrant on board the steamer Pocklington at Tyne Dock on the 11th inst. and charged him. The accused replied "I had no intention of defrauding. If he had waited until the weekend, I would have paid". The accused stated that after ordering the suit he asked Mr Swain for the loan of a few shillings, and he lent him ten. One of the officers of the Brighton had 4 belonging to him and he intended to get that money on the following day and repay Mr Swain. He was unable to obtain it, however.

Patrick Liljebald, ship's steward, arrested for breaking and entering

Description

Name: Patrick Liljebald Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 5 December 1907 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-119-Patrick Liljebald For an image of his accomplice Eilert Tiller see www.flickr.com/photos/twm_news/25961770405/in/album-72157.... The Shields Daily News for 13 December 1907 reports: ?SEAFARING MEN SENT TO PRISON. Patrick Liljebald (35), described as a ship?s steward, of Gothenburg, and Eilert Tiller (20), a Norwegian sailor, were brought up on remand charged with breaking and entering on the 5th December a shop situate on the Union Quay, and stealing therefrom a quantity of cigarettes, tobacco etc, of the value of 1 4s 2d, the property of Messrs E.H. Smith and Co. The Chief Constable (Mr J.H. Huish) withdrew this charge and preferred one of simple larceny. Evidence was given to the effect that PC Armstrong, while on duty on the Union Quay, noticed that a window of the shop mentioned had been broken, and he in consequence kept observation upon the premises. Blowing his whistle and waving his lamp about he attracted the attention of a night watchman ? Lawrence Bonholm ? who came to his assistance. Leaving the latter outside, the officer entered the premises and found the two prisoners who tried to conceal themselves. He took them into custody and had them conveyed to the police station. On being charged with breaking and entering the premises, Liljebald said he had only gone there to get a sleep, while the other prisoner made no reply. They were both sent to prison for one month with hard labour.?

Reginald Stains alias Brown, chief steward, arrested for false pretences

Description

Name: Reginald Stains alias Brown Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Arrested on: 4 December 1915 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-262-Reginald Stains AKA Brown The Shields Daily News for 15 December 1915 reports: ?NORTH SHIELDS FALSE PRETENCES CASE. ACCUSED COMMITTED FOR TRIAL. Reginald Ashley Staines (30), chief steward, of 23 Milton Terrace, was brought up on remand at North Shields today, charged with having obtained by false pretences on the 22nd Nov. from Joseph Randell, the sum of 15 and on the 23rd ult. a further sum of 7 from Joseph Randell and Ed. Perris and on the same date in a like manner, the sum of 5 from William Manson Bews, with intent to cheat and defraud. Mr Frankham of Newcastle defended. Joseph Randell of 40 Drummond Terrace stated that in the early part of November last defendant came to his shop and made reference to some previous groceries and wanted to open an account. On the 22nd October he ordered goods to be sent on board his ship. On the 22nd Nov. he wanted to cash a cheque for 15. He said he had got married and wanted to go to Liverpool and witness gave him the 15. Next day he again came to the shop and asked witness to cash another cheque for 7 and he said he would send his account from Liverpool in settlement for some goods. Witness cashed the cheque. He presented the cheques on the 22nd and 23rd Nov. and they were returned on the 24th and 25th. Mr Frankham: Defendant has had other dealings with you for groceries and provision? ? Yes. Mr Frankham: Have you cashed other cheques for him? One, for 10, which was honoured. Mr Frankham: If he had asked for the loan of a certain sum, would you have give him it? ? No. Mr Frankham: He never attempted to conceal where he was going to? ? No. Mr Frankham: You made no effort to get in touch with him? ? Yes. Mr Perris went to his mother?s and could not get his address. William Manson Bews, a tailor residing in Linskill Terrace, said that on the 23rd October the defendant came to his shop and ordered a frock suit, a jack suit, a double-breasted suit and a cap. He was dressed in a naval uniform and said the things had to be delivered to the Northumberland Arms. On the 22nd November he again came to the shop and asked for his account. He told witness he was a little short of cash. Witness gave him 5 and the defendant made out a cheque for 22 12s, in payment of the clothes and the money. The cheque was presented at Farrow?s Bank, Newcastle on the 24th and returned on the 26th. Witness still had all the clothes with the exception of the uniform. George Graham Campbell of Farrow?s Bank said that no the 24th November the cheque produced, for 15, was presented and returned, marked ?N.S.?. On that date the defendant only had 3 19s 6d in the bank. On the 25th November cheques for 7 and 22 12s were presented but the defendant only had a balance of 1 19s 6d then. Detective-Sergeant Radcliffe stated that from certain information received he went to Brighton, on the 3rd inst. and took the defendant into custody from the Brighton police. He was brought to North Shields and when questioned replied ?The only thing I can say is, the cheque must not have been met?. When charged later he made no reply. The defendant pleaded not guilty. Mr Frankham said the defendant had not the slightest intent to rob anybody of money. He had a banking account and being newly married and unwell, had gone away and given these cheques. He had about 16 on board the ship and the officers were owing him about 30. The defendant gave a cheque for 1 on the 13th November as a donation to the YMCA. He had not tried to cover up any tracks and the officers on board HMS Satellite knew where he was. The defendant, in giving evidence on his own behalf, said he was chief steward on HM Yacht Medusa II. The ship came into port on the 19th November and he had leave granted because he had been ill and he was going to be married. After the marriage he went to Liverpool and was there two days and he then went to London and Brighton. He sent his medical certificate to HMS Satellite. When he got the money from Mr Randell and Mr Bews he understood he had sufficient money in the bank to meet the cheques. Money was owing to him on board the ship but he could not say how much. He had no intention of defrauding the people. The defendant was committed for trial at the Quarter Sessions?. On 6 January 1916 at Northumberland Quarter Sessions Reginald Staines was acquitted on a charge of obtaining money by false pretences from tradesmen at North Shields. These images are taken from an album of photographs of prisoners brought before the North Shields Police Court between 1902 and 1916 (TWAM ref. DX1388/1). This set is our selection of the best mugshots taken during the First World War. They have been chosen because of the sharpness and general quality of the images. The album doesn?t record the details of each prisoner?s crimes, just their names and dates of arrest. In order to discover the stories behind the mugshots, staff from Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums visited North Shields Local Studies Library where they carefully searched through microfilm copies of the ?Shields Daily News? looking for newspaper reports of the court cases. The newspaper reports have been transcribed and added below each mugshot. Combining these two separate records gives us a fascinating insight into life on the Home Front during the First World War. These images document the lives of people of different ages and backgrounds, both civilians and soldiers. Our purpose here is not to judge them but simply to reflect the realities of their time.
