"Exciting scenes were witnessed in Station Street, Birmingham, this afternoon, when a soldier in uniform ran amok and struck out right and left at innocent persons by whom the man was utterly unknown. Tho soldier evidently had a cork arm, but this did not deter him from being very violent. He was eventually arrested by Police Constable Taylor and taken to Digbeth Police Station. There a man presented himself with his front teeth knocked out and looking very shaky. He complained that he had been assaulted by the soldier, who was detained."
"Soldier Runs Amok?"
Birmingham Mail : January 2nd 1917 Page 3

"The remarkable conduct of a wounded soldier in Station Street yesterday afternoon had its sequel at the Birmingham Police Court today, when John Walin [19], Essex Street, was charged before the Stipendiary with drunkenness and assault. The defendant now appeared in civilian clothing, and it was stated by Police Constable Taylor that he found him at 3.40 yesterday afternoon in Station Street at the centre of a large crowd. He was in soldier's uniform, was very drunk, and using filthy language. He repeatedly kicked witness on the way to the station. Horace William Tildesley, of Willenhall, said he was walking along the street when the prisoner, a perfect stranger, crossed over to him, and without the slightest provocation, struck him on the nose. His eye-glasses were knocked off and he had not seen them since. The man came for him again, and witness knocked him down. Yet again the man came for him, but someone called out, "He's only got one arm," and witness merely caught hold of him. The crowd separated them. Percy Harrison, Stoke Street, a discharged soldier, said he was walking along Station Street with his wife, and seeing the prisoner coming along staggering, he observed, "Here's a wounded soldier." They went to make way for him, but Walin struck him across the jaw with a stick. It was another soldier, not the defendant, who knocked his teeth out. Accused, who evidently had a cork arm and defective leg, attributed his remarkable conduct to having been "gassed." The police stated that he was awaiting his final discharge from the army, with a pension for life. The Stipendiary remanded Walin for a week that enquiries might be made at the hospital where he had been treated for wounds."
