Police Gazette, 1920

Annie Birkett's son Harry never believed that his mother had absconded with another man and not made contact with him or his aunt in the subsequent years. He placed this missing notice in the Police Gazette three years after Annie's disappearance. When Annie's body was identified, suspicion fell on her husband, Harry Crawford. He was arrested by the Chatswood Police on 22 July 1920 and taken to the Central Police Station for questioning and to take part in identification parades. He revealed his true identity as a woman when he was threatened with going to a mens' gaol. From NRS 10958 Police Gazette NSW, 1920 [1/3252, p.474]
