Suffragette Lilian Lenton in Court 1913

A newspaper placard dated Wednesday, June 11, 1913, with the headline, Miss. Lenton's Reappearance. Lilian Lenton (1891-1972) was arrested under the name May Dennis in Doncaster on 9th June and remanded. She was charged with setting fire to Westfield, a house at Balby, at Leeds Assizes and sent to Armley Jail. She went on hunger strike and after several days was released, although not forcibly fed. Lilian was a notorious Mouse who evaded police capture several times. In an interview in the 1950s, she boasted that her aim was to burn two buildings a week, when not in prison. She was imprisoned along with Olive Wharry in March 1912 for burning down the tea pavillion in Kew Gardens. Date: 1913

Ernest Boulton, in male attire. Ernest Boulton and Frederick William Park, also known as Stella and Fanny, arrested at the Strand Theatre for incitement to commit an unnatural offence, by going around London at night in women's clothes. As the wearing of women's clothes was not an offence, and homosexual activity could not be proved, they were acquitted at their trial in 1871

Senegal - Rebellion at Thies - Sarithia Dieye captured Featured Print

Senegal - Rebellion at Thies - Sarithia Dieye captured

The circumstances surrounding the outbreak of the Thies rebellion remain obscure. An article at the time said that the rebellion began after the sentencing to 15 days in jail of Diery Fall. He did not accept the charge and with associates, attacked and killed a young colonial officer, Monsieur Chautemps. Two days later, Diery Fall was caught and killed by his own brother who cut off his head and forearm to bring the Pouvergue administrator who had them exposed publicly as a warning and intimidation. Another assassin, Sarithia Dieye was caught a few days later at St. Mary of Bathurst in Gambia. All that remains of this dramatic episode are these remarkable postcards. After being caught on camera, Canar Fall (head of Western Baol province), his brother and "courtiers" were all deported to Guyana. This photograph shows Sarithia Dieye having been captured and Meissa Lahobe, who aided the arrest of Dieye at Bathurst. Date: 1904
