Children wailed and were held up for a final glimpse of their departing father, while women shoved and jostled with each other to wave goodbye – possibly for the last time – to their husbands on the quayside as the troopship was about to sail. Isabella Terrett, however, stood unmoved; no tears stained her pretty cheeks. She was not even sad. She turned her back on the ship in Liverpool Docks and walked away without as much as a backward glance. Now that her husband was gone it was up to her to support herself and her daughter, and she planned to work with her mother at Burnley Barracks. Isabella was young, pretty and bound to turn the heads of any number of young officers, which could lead to trouble. Further, it has been said that women can seldom resist a man in a uniform, and Isabella proved that she was not the exception to the rule…Passion, jealousy, murder; it’s all in Love and Dath at Burnley Barracks.
George Williams was an early example of "Care in the Community" that hadn’t worked. He absconded from a mental home, and because he kept his nose clean for two weeks he was allowed to return to his home in Wiltshire.
