    CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS: CRUELTY TO A MARE. Sidney Greenall, aged 16, a labourer, and Frederick Webb, aged 49, a brewer of Landbeach, were summoned for cruelty illtreating a mare, the former by working it, and the latter by causing it to be worked, while in an unfit state, at Waterbeach, on the 11th November. Both defendants pleaded not guilty. PC Brooke said that he saw the defendant Greenall on the day in question in charge of a horse attached to a cart, laden with about a ton and a half of coal, in Station-road, Waterbeach. His attention was drawn to the mare by a sack which was under the saddle, and he examined the animal, with the result that he found a large open wound upon the back under the saddle. The flesh was very much inflamed, and blood and matter were oozing from the wound. He produced the sack, upon which was a large blot of blood, The lad Greenall informed witness that his master knew of the condition of the mare, and that he told him to put the sacking over it, to prevent chafing. Subsequently witness saw Webb, who admitted that the horse had had a bad back for over a week. PS Salmon corroborated. Oliver Driver, Inspector of the RSPCA, said he examined the horse two days after the discovery, and found the wound as described, very much inflamed. The defendant Webb said the wound was a new one, and he did not think it was very bad. A fine of 10s and costs, was imposed on Webb, and 2s 6d without costs, upon Greenall.

    HULL DAILY MAIL: "..... To my mind, the finest skater I ever saw was the late Sid Greenall of Landbeach, whose death a few weeks ago removed from the sporting world a remarkable athlete. For many years he was the professional skating champion of England, but he was equally as good on the sports field, running, cycle racing and obstacle racing coming alike to him. He was earning a good living at sports meetings when such famous men as (names omitted) were in their prime....."
