Looks good enough to me. Would imprisioned civil power mean it was a civillian offence?

I reckon so Julie.

More than likely drunk as a skunk.:2fun: :2fun:

Only looks like a month in clink, so I don't reckon it was too serious.;)

Looks like he had two periods in the Army as I read it, but I bet i'm wrong though.:biggrin:

Drunk as a skunk might be right. He died in 1894 apparently had to much to drink at a funeral fell asleep in a doorway, caught pneumonia and met his maker.
