Mexborough & Swinton Times – Saturday 20 May 1911
A Conisborough Peacemaker
But for PC Briggs on Saturday week there would have been a “scrapping match” between Thomas Appleyard, sawyer, and Fred Powell, miner, both of Conisborough.
The officer found the men stripped for action and when he forbade the combat they used abusive language.
They were fined 5/– and costs.
