Old Soldier from Maesteg
Tells Justices of his young days.
"Im' an old soldier Sir" said David Jones (69), who was charged at Newport on Friday, with begging.
I come home from Africa, Sir, in '85, an I had a slap here (pointing to his head)"with a Zulu Knobkerri'. I come from Maesteg, Sir. I'm a poor old man now, Sir, and I worked hard in my young days.
The Chairman (Mr Martyn), If we let you off, will you go back to Maesteg? Prisoner: Yes Mr Magistrate.
He was discharged.
