Both letters were written to a lady called Nellie, but unfortunately there is no surname or address. One was written by Nellie’s father, on the notepaper of the Chief Goods Manager, North East Railway. But was it written by the Manager? If not, by whom? What was his home address?
The other letter was written by someone called Jack. Again the letter gives no surname but his address was Holme House, York. However we’ve been unable to trace this address, which from the description of the bombing was somewhere near the South Bank area. This letter also refers to a Phil living in Jack’s house.
