On This Day



On This Day… All You Had To Do Was Ask Me!

Written by: George Chittenden : 08 Jul 2019

It was on this day, 12th March, back in 1969 when London’s drug squad raided the home of Beatle guitarist George Harrison. Unfortunately, George wasn’t there, but his wife Pattie Boyd phoned him whilst the police turned his home upside down.

When George arrived home, he told the officers “You needn’t have turned the whole bloody place upside down. All you had to do was ask me and I would have shown you where I keep everything.” They didn’t need his help though, as they’d already discovered a considerable amount of hashish.

Both George Harrison and Pattie Boyd were arrested, which was unfortunate as they missed Paul and Linda McCartney’s wedding that same day as a result. The pair convinced the authorities it was all for their personal use and were eventually fined £250 each.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
