LETTER: These words were not mine

Share this article

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.
