Yorkshire Soldiers in Trouble at Limerick: Wanted to “Get Out”

At Limerick City, two privates from the West Yorkshire Regiment were sentenced to six days of hard labor for maliciously breaking two panes of glass in a shop window. The damage was estimated at 1s for each broken pane. The Lieutenant noted that the accused had a fair character and that this incident wouldn’t have occurred under ordinary circumstances.
