LETTER: These words were not mine

Thank you for using my unaltered insertion of the supplied text on the subject of the demise of Terminus Road Post Office branch in a recent edition of Looking Back.

However, a large chunk of text in bold not supplied by me included some inaccurate information unconnected with Post Office Ltd but relating to the business of the forerunners of Royal Mail.

I gather this extra information was taken from a Google page by one of your reporters to illustrate some photos.

As the author of a forthcoming definitive history of the Post Office in Eastbourne, I would wish to distance myself from that inaccurate information which, like I said, was not supplied by me.
