Bury St Edmunds nostalgia - man has upper denture smashed after being attacked by mistake
In April 1952, the story of a man being attacked by mistake at a dance hall was heard at West Suffolk Executive Council in Bury St Edmunds.
The man hoped to receive a replacement for his smashed upper denture after he helped the doorkeeper to break up a fight.
He said: "On leaving the dance, two men the worse for drink set about me before I hardly got through the door. I never had much chance. It happened without warning, and one against two don't work out too often.
"It finished up that they had mistaken me for another fellow," he added.
The council deferred the matter for further details.
