Expired Gun Permit

The following is an extract from the Lisburn Standard dated Friday 4th April 1930.

Crumlin Petty Sessions.
No Certificate.

John McPeake, Ballymacilhoyle, was summoned for being in possession of a gun for which he had not the necessary certificate. The case was adjourned, defendant undertaking to secure a certificate.

District Inspector Fletcher explained that defendant had been a member of the "C" Special Constabulary. Notices were sent out that the permits issued to the "C" Specials had expired, and that certificates would have to be obtained in the ordinary way.

Defendant said he thought the permit he had was still in force.
