    I totally agree they were some of the most informative police records I have seen and nothing short of a criminal act by their destruction

    But Clutterbucks thesis does give a veryy good insight into how SB was formed and how it operated in those early days

    The Chummery was close to where Druitt's body was found.
    RJP you must have been ruminating on this matter for weeks, waiting for an opportunity to expound!

    Dew was clearly incompetent--he had no idea that Charles Lechmere was dismembering women in a cat's meat shed.

    I shouldn't risk send the thread off topic, but someday I'm going to have to ask Trevor Marriott (and Ed Stow, for that matter) what credible information links M. J. Druitt to the "Chummery" in Chiswick?

    What evidence is there that Druitt (an Oxford man) even knew Harry Wilson (a Cambridge man)?

    What evidence is there that the Chummery was a homosexual club of some sort?

    I would suggest using caution in accepting something as fact, merely because it once appeared in a book.

    Further, there are plenty of examples in the annals of 'true crime,' where a policeman fitted-up the wrong guy (or failed to solve a case) and it later transpired that he had either entirely ignored valuable information that had been given to him by the public on a plate, or had failed to investigate it properly, having already convinced himself that the wrong answer was the right one.

    These cautionary tales clearly cut both ways!!

    Perhaps it would help if you could explain what point you're trying to make by saying that.

    Was there a John McCarthy who was known to have been or suspected of being a member?

    Yes, I noticed that one too when I had grape stalks on my mind a couple of weeks ago.

    Clutterbuck's thesis also refers to the criticisms of Sir Robert Anderson in Frederick Moir Bussy's book "Irish Conspiracies; recollections of John Mallon (the Great Irish Detective) and other Reminiscences", published in 1910. (An article by Paul Begg entitled "Inspector Mallon and Frederick Bussy on Sir Robert Anderson" was published in Ripperologist 122 in 2011.)

    Thank you. In the file in the Resources section, I've provided only links to the images on her site, so that shouldn't be a concern.

    Of course if people have any genuine concerns about content on this site with regard to copyright they should contact us, and they'll be given proper attention.
