BURGESS HILL ROYAL BRITISH LEGION WOMENS SECTION: At our Meeting on 21st March, our Speaker was Paul Green, who gave a talk on Murders and Misdemeanours. He explained why Sussex could be described as the murder capital of the country, as it has a very dark side. He then supplied details of famous murderers and their heinous crimes - many involving poisoned chocolates. He also produced pictures of Brighton slum dwellings during the Victorian period. His talk was, as well as most informative, also quite amusing, Members were then invited to take part in being a Jury and handing down verdicts on cases which Paul narrated. This was a very absorbing exercise in which we all enjoyed taking part. There then followed a discussion on crime and punishment, and how things have changed over the passage of time.
