The owner of the cat (Sergeant Manner, R.5L) said the animal was the pet of the division, and he believed Tourner attacked it because he had an ill-feeling against witness. The defence was that Tourner did not know to whom the cat belonged, and that in killing it he was merely acting in purmanco of the orders issued by the commandant, such great annoy-. aneo hexing been caused in tho mess-room by cats, that orders were given for all stray ones to be " mado eway with."
