Letter p.2 - Tragedy on the home front - Did you know that...

RG 3, series C-2, vol. 644, file 87629
Letter from W.E. McClelland, Post Office Inspector to R.M. Coulter, Deputy Post Master General
The sheer devastation and suffering that Post Office Inspector McClelland experienced are clearly displayed despite the bureaucratic formalities of this report. While no one was seriously injured in the Inspector’s Office, McClelland writes that other postal branches saw several casualties amongst the employees and that no family was left untouched by the tragedy in the city.
