John William Wet more (29), milk carter, denied having attempted to cash the ticket for £18/10/-. His room mate, Roy Cedric Christiansen (26), denied having forged the ticket. Both claimed that they had made 'untruthful admissions to the police.

Wetmore said that he did not know the ticket was a forgery when it was given to him to cash by a man named 'Fred,' whom he had met for the first and only time that day.
