    Match Report

PARIS, May 17.-The annual Association football match between England and France was played here this afternoon and resulted in the victory of the English side by three goals to one. The game was keenly contested, and in spite of the heat a fast pace was maintained right up to the final whistle.

V. W. Gibbins, of Clapton, scored England's first goal with a good shot, following a free kick. Storer scored the second goal from a fine centre by Thornewell. The second half opened by a vigorous attack by the Frenchmen, and eventually Dewaque scored...

...Seven minutes from the end Storer tried a cross-shot, and the French right back, Baumann, in endeavouring to intercept it, diverted the ball into his own goal...-Reuter - The Times - Monday 19th May, 1924


It was on 17 May 1924 that Mabel Jones was cross-examined in the trial of her secret lover, Jean-Pierre Vaquier, accused of murdering her husband, Alfred by strychnine poisoning. Mabel had tried to save her husband's life by giving him salt water to make him vomit. The French inventor had added the poison to a bottle of bromide powders, that Jones added water to as a hangover cure. It was kept behind the bar of the hotel run by the Joneses in Byfleet in Surrey and at which Vaquier was a guest. Vaquier was found guilty and was hanged, three months later.
