Three members of Colin Jordan’s British Nazi movement were found guilty of insulting behavior and fined today for an incident last month when they picketed businesses on fashionable Regent Street wearing swastika armbands and bearing anti-Jewish placards.

During the trial, the court was shown two placards, one with the words “Boycott Bloom and Jewish Business,” and the other “Free Britain from Jewish control.” All three men said they would appeal the judgment. Gordon Callow 30, and William Paley, 21, were each fined 50 pounds ($140) and 10 guineas ($29,40) costs with the alternative of three months’ imprisonment, while Gerald Lawman, 18, was fined 25 pounds ($70.)
