1915 25 Mar. Described as a middle-aged man, employed at the Albert Pottery Co., he was charged with four others of killing or taking two linnets, and also with cruelty to them. The bird catchers were found in a field adjoining Sparke-Evans Park, St Philip’s Marsh with a net, two linnets pegged to the ground, and a linnet in a cage.   Brooks said that he was in the field looking for a gate which had been taken from his master’s field and that he had nothing to do with bird catching. The case against him was dismissed (Western Daily Press).
