LANCASHIRE CONSTABULARY CIVIL DEFENCE WARDENS' SERVICE

Chief Warden's Office
841, Chester Road
Strerford

May, I945

Dear Miss Green,
Early in 1938 a call was made for Volunteers for the Wardens' Service, to help in the defence of Stretford Borough. The response was magnificent and from then up to now the Service has functioned 100% despite many ups and downs. The many hours of duty performed have been so willingly undertaken and dangers have been faced so cheerfully under raiding conditions that now the job is finished I would like to say how much I have appreciated all you have done, and to say thank you very much. It has been a pleasure to have been your Chief, and now that the time has come to stand down it is with certain regrets that we part.
Good luck to you and yours in the years to come, and I pray that the sacrifices you have made shall not be in vain.

Yours sincerely,

R. E. Bayley

CHIEF WARDEN.
