DUNDEE EVENING TELEGRAPH, FRIDAY 15 JULY 1927

FIFE MAN BLAMES ‘LAPSE OF MEMORY’

DUNFERMLINE PRISON SENTENCE FOR ‘BREACH’

A Cairneyhill labourer, Peter McArthur, in custody, was sent to prison for ten days by Sheriff Umpherston at Dunfermline today for breach of the peace.

He pleaded guilty to having committed a breach of the peace on 8th July at the house at Hilton Road, Cairneyhill, occupied by Anne Graham, widow.

He stated that it was a recurrence of his war disability that was the cause of the trouble. He was troubled with lapse of memory at times. If he was causing a breach of the peace it was not wilfully done.
