No. 5684, Page 3, Column 5 – “COULD NOT SEE FUNERAL”

Miss Lesla Sheldon, an actress, of Unwin-mansions, Queen’s Club gardens, at Marylebone yesterday sued Miss F. M. Hill, of Cambridge-terrace, Edgware rd., for L2, which she had paid for seats to view the late King’s funeral procession, and a verdict for plaintiff was returned.

Miss Sheldon said that on the telephone she agreed to pay L2 for two seats.  On the morning of the funeral she was told that the balcony seats were three guineas each, but they might go on the roof.  Plaintiff went to the roof, but did not get a view of the procession.
