The Villains in my Home Town- part 8.
F or some reason this one slipped through my memory net. Firstly, Pete Mullins just reminded me that we found ourselves in court together, twice and not once as I said last time (april 18). Secondly, this sketching job is the trial for the jailbreak that Abbott, the 'Postcard bandit', planned. They made their exit under a 'hail of gunfire', but three of his accomplices were nabbed fairly quickly. Abbott was on the lam until the middle of the following year (my april 17).
In fact this one got a great deal of coverage and there was an artist for Channel Nine there too. I never crossed paths with him again.
