Frank Miles Army Service Record

Joined 8th Hussars, in Canterbury on 2nd January 1886, aged 19 years & 1 month.

By July 1890 Frank Miles was based at the Britannia Barracks, in Norwich. The 8th Hussars proved to be 'popular' with the locals, and by 1893, Frank and Millie were married, with Frank working for local brewer, Morgans & Sons. In June 1895, Frank and Millie were seperated, with the trial notes stating he was living above the pub of The Crown & Anchor, 94/100 Calvert Street, when events took a macarbre twist. It appears that the respect that Miles had, for his time in the Cavalry, coupled with the recent, high profile murders of Jack the Ripper, in London, went some way to re-inforce that Millie was working as a 'prostitute'. At his trial, Miles' defence was one of 'extreme provocation'.

Discharged from Army after 9 years 201 days on 19th July 1895, (after his imprisonment)

Committed Murder in June 1895, giving the Gardeners Arms, The gruesome name of The Murderers
