Descripción

Softcover. In the punishing summer of 1906 - one of the worst droughts on record - Emma and Albert Watson, desperate for water for their livestock, came to take some from a neighbour's pond in Honeypot Lane, Basildon. Albert and Emma Watson were found lying dead beside the small pond, with gunshot wounds. Suspicion fell on two youths, named Buckham, Robert aged 17 and Richard aged 21, who were arrested on a charge of causing the deaths.In the murderous mud of Flanders in the Great War, amidst daring reconnaissance raids and brutal fighting, 6650 L/Cpl Buckham Robert of the elite Cavalry Regiment, the 1st (Royal) Dragoons, was awarded the Military Medal - one of the highest awards for bravery given to Other Ranks. The Honeypot Killers is the true and remarkable story of the Buckham brothers, told as if through the words of those whose lives they touched, many of whom went on to have illustrious and distinguished careers. The 'junior analyst' in the murder trial went on to become the UK's State Pathologist. A doctor at East London's Shadwell Hospital, where the infant Richard Buckham was treated as a 'mental defective', was appointed the country's Director of Convict Prisons. A member of the Grand Jury became the first commoner to be Lord Lieutenant of Essex. And a lieutenant commanding Buckham's troop in the Royal Dragoons married into the Maltese aristocracy. The Honeypot Killers killed in defence of their territory - and faced what Society deemed their due rewards. Richard James Buckham was hanged by Henry Pierrepoint for the murders, on December 4, 1906. Robert Charles Buckham was acquitted and set free in November of 1906. Illus., Dramatis Personnae + Bibliog. 240pp. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. F. with no creasing to covers.
