1936: The perpetual driving licence


That ‘he thought the licence went on for all time’ was the excuse offered by George Walter Ellis, the Albion Hotel, Eastbourne, who was summoned for driving a car without a licence at Cuckfield on June 5th. He was fined £2, and was also fined £1 for exceeding the speed limit in a built -up area. PC Marshall gave evidence.
