The Slasher

Almost three years ago I made a brief mention of William Perry, know as The Tipton Slasher. My piece was brief as I found it difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff when looking for information. Well, I have just learned that a new biography of this famous pugilist is about to be published. -
Slasher - The True Story of William Perry  by Chris Smith promises in its title to save me a lot of legwork.Apparently it contains much previously unseen material. If you can get to Tipton Library on Saturday Feb 28 the author is signing copies at the book launch.(11.30 - 1300)

    Sounds like it will be a good read. Local history is almost always more entertaining (and imaginative) than its global equivalent.

    Good luck with the journeys this year Peter. Looking forward to your many posts and images in the spring and summer to come.
