One Wet Suffragette – From the Lambeth Archive

Link: Lambeth Landmark.

Article covering an incident that took place in the grounds of Bessemer House, Denmark Hill, at the Chancellor, Mr Lloyd George’s meeting. Supporters of Sylvia Pankhurst’s suffragette movement, a young man and woman and later the Rev.C.A.Wills, interrupted the meeting and were assaulted and thrown into a pond in the grounds.Published in the Daily Express, 22 June 1914Article published in the Daily Express, 22nd June 1914

Ahhh those were the days.. A Rev Willis who ‘interrupted’ a speech by Lloyd George is carried outside and thrown in a pond! Then a steward wades in and tries to duck (dunk?) him, that bloke from the Labour conference who shouted out ‘liar’ at Jack Straw got off lightly!
