It's fairly clear that the first incident took place in the
early hours of December 26 (Halt's memo erroneously gives the
date as December 27). In their witness statements, Burroughs,
Cabansag, Buran and Chandler state that the incident took place
in the early hours of December 26 (Penniston's statement doesn't
give the date) and this ties in with the civil police logs,
available (as .pdf documents) on the Suffolk Constabulary


The date of the incident in which Charles Halt was involved is
less clear, but it seems to be the night of December 27/28. To
further complicate matters, there are indications that there
were other incidents on other nights.

This issue (and other ones currently being discussed, such as
the question of what went into the witness statements and what
was left out) are discussed at length in Georgina Bruni's book
on the case, You Can't Tell The People.

Best wishes,

Nick Pope
